Graphite Butterfly


While we were away, I had opportunity to do quite a bit of sketching.  This is one of six, 6x6 pieces in graphite, which I will eventually ink and then add color.

I was greatly inspired by our dear Friend Darlene, of Dancing Mangoes, who shows her work from conception to finish.

As I finish each stage of this drawing, I will post it, so you can see my progress!

Have a GREAT week!

This butterfly really knows how to relax! It'll be fun to see your progression.
