Leaves into Butterflies

Leaves into Butterflies




On one of many trips to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, I began to draw some grass and leaves and then a butterfly lit on one of the leaves I was drawing. The butterfly was so beautiful I thought it would be nice to create many of them. So I wet some leaves with watercolor paints and put some salt on the paper and pressed the leaves down. It was fun to see how one butterfly inspired me to make many!

In our new Facebook group, One Watercolor A Day, (view it HERE) we’ll be encouraging readers to follow along with the exercises on a weekly basis, and post their results. We’d love to see them! We look forward to visiting the group too, and chatting with all of you about your work – what you enjoy, what you need help with, and what you absolutely love or hate about watercolors!

From now until midnight on December 15th, if you join our group we will automatically enter you in our drawing to receive a free copy of the book.  To enter, go to our One Drawing A Day facebook page HERE and send us a message asking to be added to One Watercolor A Day, including your email address. Once you’re added, your name goes into the drawing. And that’s it! The winner will be announced on this blog on December 17th.

We hope you enjoy our tribute to watercolor over the next few weeks.

Happy painting!
