An Original watercolour, speckled wood Butterfly on green leaves

Title:
Butterfly on leaves

There are so many beautiful insects. This speckled wood butterfly eats aphid honeydew. This is the sticky sweet substance produced by aphids.

This image was created using a negative painting technique. You start with very light colours and slowly build up the layers till you are mixing very dark ones. In the case I started by sketching out the butterfly and a few leaves. The leaves were a light yellow green. I then drew more leaves but underlapping the light leaves. I painted these slightly darker. I carried on till I had a really dark green. This method creates great depth to what could have been a very flat painting if all the leaves were the same colour.

I hope you like it any questions please ask, always happy to help.
