Original Watercolour Butterfly Painting – Realistic Fine Art

Paper Kite butterflies can be found in Asia and Northern Australia usually around coastal mangrove swamps.  They live as adults for about 6 – 9 months and are poisonous.  This is a result of the larvae stage feeding on venomous host plants.  The species is often kept in butterfly houses, indeed I think I may have seen one on a visit to a butterfly collection in Cornwall!  Their translucent silvery white wings have an impressive span of 12 – 14cm and they fly with a slow flight pattern.

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.

Do you want to create your own original watercolour butterfly painting?  Maybe take a look at becoming a member of my online school.  I feel that I have found my niche and I absolutely love teaching others.  Firstly, I find it extremely rewarding to be able to see the progress my students make.  Secondly I enjoy being able to interact directly with fellow wildlife artists.  Thirdly and most importantly I am able to share my love of the watercolour medium.  So take a look on YouTube or become a member and you may see this painting being created or learn how to paint your own version.
