Drawspace lesson S05: How to draw a butterfly.

As much as I love butterflies I could never do a proper proportional drawing of it. It's weird, because it seems to be so simple, but hey, it's not! Recently I included a Poppy in one of my works and swear, It took me several hours to outline something valuable. So no wonder butterflies don't come easy to me!

But here it is, my first colorful butterfly.

I loved it!!! I didn't reach the same colors as on the reference, but I don't mind. I loved doing the white dots and mixing the colors.

The challenge was to draw another butterfly so I did two more.
That's the first (ref image)

And that's the second. (ref image)

The experience was amazing and I had so much fun drawing those!
