Monarch Butterfly ACEO in Acrylics

I love the complementary colours of this one.  It was the perfect one  to paint as an ACEO.  Again I did a wash for the background before painting the butterfly.  To get the light into the wings I actually found a yellow glaze worked rather well. 

Monarch Butterfly ACEO measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm Arches Smooth Watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Pamela Utton for the reference photos.
