Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly on Pink Buddleia Flowers - watercolor painting
The contrast of the yellow swallowtail against the magenta pink bloom was delightful, so I decided to paint the scene. I used wet-into-wet watercolor washes in the background to keep all that soft and out of focus so the foreground would pop out. You can maybe see the wet paint dripping from the paper in the demo picture. Click the images to see them enlarged.
The original painting is sold. If you would like to order a print, please contact me. Thanks for stopping by. Have a beautiful day!
