I have always wanted to paint mini paintings and then sell them online. As these mini butterfly paintings would be the perfect size to ship, there is still a good amount of work that needs to be done. The yellow-ish butterfly needs some additional work, but the pink/red butterfly is pretty much ready to go!
If anyone is interested in any of these, let me know – $10 via paypal will get you one of the mini butterfly paintings shipped for free. 🙂
The first butterfly I sketched out but then realized pretty soon that the last time I did a butterfly painting, I had outlined a butterfly with only a paintbrush and paint… no penciling in the outline like I did with this one.
As I waited for the yellow butterfly to dry, I started on another mini canvas painting. This time I sketched out the butterfly by using a darker paint first and then filled in the background. With my boyfriend observing from a distance, he made a couple of great suggestions, which led me to think what else to do to make the painting pop out.
