Butterflies come in many species, from dark to multi colored. That doesn’t mean the dark ones aren’t beautiful. They’re mystical appearances in dark nights. The can be very interesting with little dots and stripes.
Butterflies are like pieces of art. Painting them is a delight and inspiration is endless. These below are done with watercolor on smooth paper. The reason I prefer smooth paper is because you still can move the paint around as long as it’s wet.
