Task Complete

A few weeks ago I set myself the task of drawing four different butterflies.

The reason was to try something different as up until now my main subjects for drawing were portraits of animals and birds.

Here are the completed butterflies:-

It took a little longer than I had planned and it was more challenging than expected. I definitely prefer drawing portraits of animals and birds. I just love capturing their facial expressions. With insects their is not that same connection.

It is now back to animal portraits with this Zebra and Cheetah. The Zebra is in color pencil and the Cheetah is in graphite and black color pencil.
