Tiger Swallowtail in acrylics

So here is the butterfly.  I really enjoyed painting this one  - the wings took a lot longer to paint than I thought it would as it took a while to get the wings right.  Really pleased with the final painting.  I am thinking about  painting  a few more butterflies so will see how I go with finding same suitable reference photos.

Tiger Swallowtail measures are 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord panel.


Many thanks to K Brooks for the reference photo.
