Monarch

Just finished reading Barbara Kingsolver's "Flight Behavior". Her description of the Monarch butterflies is wonderful an amazing wordsmith. Highly recommend this book. More monarchs to come!

Beautiful watercolour, love the crisp lines. did you use gum or Dr'd it on the computer? We had a few butterflies out in the garden yesterday...love them. :)

Thanks for your comment Catherine, I actually painted around the spots and then added some white with gouache.Then digitally collaged the composition together. As blooms open we have been seeing some honey bees + lots of birds.
