Original Butterfly Watercolour Painting, Lovely Fine Art
This has to be one of the most beautiful butterflies.  Indeed with so many colours, tones and shades within the wings it was a joy for me to paint.  The Painted Lady is one of our migrant species of butterfly.  Each year, it travels from North African desert fringes, the Middle East and central Asia.  What an amazing feat for such a tiny insect.  They do this in order to feed and breed on their favourite plant – a thistle.  My painting depicts them on common fleabane another good plant for attracting butterflies.

Painting Dimensions
The size of the painting is approx. : 210mm x 279mm (8.27″ x 11.69″).

Packaging & Materials

I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me!

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.
