Watercolor butterflies

I painted two of these butterflies last night. I thought they would make great companion pieces. $25.00 each 4 by 6 plus shipping
This is done in the drop in method. Basically you paint in water, then while the water is still shiny, you drop in paint and allow it to run. Sometimes you tilt the paper to guide the color other times you just let it do it's thing. Its fun to do and is one of the first lessons most water color artists learn. Sometimes I forget how beautiful the simple techniques really are.butterfly
