I was inspired to do this sketch of the butter fly because I purchased a set of Derwent Watercolour Pencils to see how they would work. The male butterfly is identified by the two rounded spots on its lower wings. I began by drawing the shape of the butterfly then laying in the colour with the watercolour pencils. The pencils are water soluable & blending softly each section of colour with a watercolour brush creates the watercolour look. I had to add more colour once it was dry so as to keep the colour balanced on each wing. Pen & ink work was used to file in the body & to finish the look of the wings.
