Day 92: Butterfly and Thistle Pt.2

Butterfly & Thistle (Watercolour)

Butterfly & Thistle (Watercolour)

Before I took off the masking today (of course you realised the butterfly and thistle were masked?) I decided that the background probably needed to be a bit more intense, so I added another wash of green around them – even now I’m wondering if it should have been even stronger…

Since removing masking there has been a suggestion of some form on the butterfly and I ran some colour into the flowers of the thistles. You can probably see that the antennae have also had a bit of colour added, just so they don’t look too white. Lots more still to do 🙂
