This small drawing was done from one of my reference photos and, after being sprayed with a fixative, will be given to my daughter.


  1. Hi Jeanette, I am sure that your daughter will be delighted. Butterflies make such wonderful subjects don't they? They are great to do in cps as you can get in all the lovely detail. Congratulations on having such a wonderful reference photo to work from. I often find that they fly away just as I am about to snap the picture. :-)

  2. I was lucky, Teresa. My daughter actually brought this one inside and it was sitting on her hand in the reference photo. She's usually my insect holder when I need a closeup pic...or she's holding the stick that the bug is on.
