RosieDees Challenge week 23

Here is my entry for the Challenge at RosieDees. This week we were to use watercolour paints and this is what I came up with. The whole butterfly is done in watercolour paints. I drew the butterfly first in pencil and coloured it in using water colour paints. I very carefully outlined it using a plastic toothpick and water colour paint from a tube. When it was dry I painted around the butterfly in yellow and finished it off using pearl sequins as a border to give it some sparkle.
This was quite a challenge as I am not an artist and using watercolour paints is something I do not do a lot except for backgrounds.

  1. This is lovely, I do admire you drawing the butterfly, I just can't draw at all. It's really nice Paula xxx
