Original Creation

Monarch butterfly

Tom0779 15 Sep 2020

Again I try to learn something totally new. This is line and wash on A5 cold pressed watercolor paper. It was the first time I tried to paint an animal (except some bird silhouettes which I do not count). I found it very difficult and you have to be patient when painting this. But I think the result looks ok. Hope someone enjoys this painting.

Watercolors Markers


This is really good Tom! You should paint animals more often

Wow. This is beautiful. Never did Watercolors. Only oils.

I love it! especially the minimal gradient in the butterfly's left wing and the composition of the whole painting. Probably one of my favorites on the site yet!

Superb creation!! The dull background really brings out the butterfly which is so very natural and detailed!
