Artist's description:

You beauty
Amongst the grasses,
Just that little bit of sunshine,
Makes all the difference,
A peacock butterfly in April.

Words and feelings of my experience on a sunny day in Spring.
One peacock butterfly appeared on the Vale of Wincombe and it was truly a special moment for me to see such a beauty and becoming so rare.
I used a pencil to draw the layout of the butterfly then I used a sable fine haired brush with a point to fill in the detail with Holbein watercolour paints. For the background I used a wet in wet technique and dragging the washes to create a soft effect of grasses in the sunshine.
