We've got a live butterfly garden and we're waiting for the chrysalides to morph into beautiful butterflies. This canvas was painted with the blast of colour in mind that butterflies bring us each summer.
I start the canvas with a rough pencil sketch and then I add the coloured paper before building up the layers with acrylic paint. The last thing I add are the embellishments of thread, beads, buttons and glitter to pick out or highlight certain areas.
