This is an original watercolour and ink painting taken from a series I created to celebrate Britain’s most common butterflies. Unusually this painting shows the underwing of the butterfly, not the easily recognisable eyed upper wings!

I love watching for butterflies. I love the way they move and I find their markings and patterning both beautiful and fascinating.

In all I created 36 illustrations in this series-18 upper wing and 18 underwing images so hopefully people could identify the butterflies they spotted regardless of what they were doing! The intricate dot work took an incredibly long time but it was the only way I felt happy with the representation of the wings.

This piece has been mounted, backed and wrapped and is ready to find it’s new home. The mounted dimensions fo this piece are 30.5cm x 25.5cm, the approximate area of the painted butterfly is 12cm x 11cm.

All items are packaged with care by me and I try to make each order special. Delivery on this item is free, I will send it First Class Signed For. 

If you have any questions please contact me, I am always happy to help!

I am taking part in the #artistsupportpledge (instigated by Matthew Burrows). The idea is simple: artists/ makers post images of work they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including postage) and every time they reach £500 of sales they pledge to buy another artist/ makers work for £100.  This hopefully creates a small but meaningful market during these troubled times where creatives can help each other out and provide some much-needed support.
