Butterflies and Birds

Watercolor 8x10

For Butterfly Garden I masked out the butterfly and then wet the paper and randomly painted in the background colors using pink, purle and green. When everything was dry I defined the flowers by painting a dark background around them, removed the masking and detailed the butterfly. I love the fantasy look of the butterfly flitting about the spring garden.

This painting was included in an Etsy collection titled Butterflies and Birds - it is always fun to see what is included in these treasuries so click here to see more.

  1. Martha your painting is so gorgeou - the butterfly and the colors are just my "kind a cup of tea" - wish I lived closer so I could take your workshop. As always your art speaks to my heart. Take care and God Bless.
