Butterfly. Work in progress. The idea was to sketch an outline then fill areas of colour wth watercolour, then overwork with coloured pencils to build up depth of colour. But the paper is wrong for this approach, it is too textured. The close-up image shows what I mean. So I intend to apply water over the coloured pencils, which are watercolour pencils after all, and complete it as a watercolour painting.
