Blue Butterfly

I started on a new butterfly today.  I really like this one. It came together very quickly.  I kept the brush strokes light and blended as I painted. Letting some of the underpainting show through as I worked.  Butterflies just make me happy.  They are so cheerful and colorful.
 Here it is finished.  If you look carefully you can see where I adjusted some of the white spots on the left and brought the top right wing up a little.  I love this little 8"x10" painting so much that I am going to do two more to make a set.
