Paper Butterflies

Butterflies on scrap watercolor paper. Pen and ink and watercolor.
A Recent Experiment:

I painted little butterflies on scraps of watercolor paper that were too small to use for anything else. Then I cut them out with an exacto knife. I am planning on using these little cutouts for some sort of collage project that I haven’t yet figured out. When I was drawing these, I looked up some images of butterflies online but I took a lot of liberties with the colors and patterns so they are not at all accurate.
