How to paint a butterfly

How to paint a butterfly is just an impression of my own observation. I can watch them moving, apparently uncontrollable. Fluttering through the air, with their very vulnerable wings. Their colorful, wondrous wings.

Last year I saw this butterfly which just hatched. As you can see in the pictures below it is still drying its wings. Nature’s wondrous world.

I like to illustrate my imaginary world by expressing and translating my thoughts and feelings into color and pattern.
