Plodding On… But Distraction was Required!

More progress has been achieved with the butterflies. The Orange-tip Butterfly is finished but I would have to say it is not my best. Part of the problem has been the reference photograph which was not always easy to interpret in places. This was particularly true where the head of the butterfly meets the flower. Also, the green and white under-wing could be better.

As for the Painted Lady Butterfly… well that is coming on better but the foliage is fiddly as the photograph again was not the best.

To make up for these disappointments I started another project. Here it is… a zebra. An easier drawing that is not too challenging!

Zebra… a work in progress.
