I’ve been painting purple butterflies all afternoon today and it’s been lovely! There are for a possible commission and may be sent all the way over to the USA. If it turns out they are not what was required, I may well end up framing them myself as I think the colours are gorgeous!!
I’ve been using a larger size of watercolour paper today which means that I haven’t got any suitably sized backing paper. Instead, I bought an A1 piece of purple card and have decorated it myself using a flower stamp and some silver ink. I then used a small amount of the card to create the non-painted butterflies.
The painting can now be backed by the purple card, ready for framing:
