Monarch Butterfly Watercolor
HI, I'm trying to finish this monarch butterfly painting before the Cape Charles Tomato Festival tomorrow.There is so much detail in a butterfly painting.I paint around the white of the paper and don't use white paint. I've put some rice paper in the side of the painting for fun. This one has a sliver of gold metallic going thru it. I will put a glaze of iridescent watercolor medium on the butterfly after I finish painting it.This will help it glow.
I have 3 other paintings to frame too and J. just asked if I'm going to do my grocery shopping.. If you happen to see me there I will be flying thru. Hope to see you tomorrow at the Festival. Have a great weekend.. Diana
