Just fluttering by to say hi.


The Arty Girlz are challenging us to be creative with a butterfly this week. I love butterflies. Here is a watercolor I did. I purposely let the main shape bleed into the paper and then painted the details after the paint dried to give the effect of fluttering. The most impressive talent a butterfly possesses.
