Artwork description:

Lucky peacock butterfly
A few warm days,
It appears,
Just that little bit of sunshine,
That’s all it needs,

Displayed before me,
Then it flys away.

Words and feelings of my experience when I spotted the lucky peacock butterfly just for that short time in the vale of Wincombe of North Dorset to Wiltshire border.

I used heavy thick high quality watercolour paper 200 lb St Cuthberts Mill , pencilled out the butterfly and then bit by bit created the detail with a few different sable haired brushes a gift from my dad.
The background of the peacock butterfly was created using a wet in wet technique and then patterns of exspression by moving the watercolour paint .

Materials used:

Rough textured watercolour paper St Cuthberts Mill 200lb acid free, Windsor and Newton watercolour paints,Sable haired brushes,water,
