What I’m working on

Papillio palinurus

Papillio palinurus

I get to hang out occasionally with a water color artist and illustrator who is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists  https://www.asba-art.org and the Pacific Northwest Botanical Artists  https://www.pnba and Kathleen’s work is posted this month in http://www.pnba-artists.com.  I recently joined this organization to have my drawings inform my sculpture.  My next project is a butterfly and red flower.  More posts once I have drawn my specimen onto paper.  I love how the photographer Andrew Lageras captured the butterfly with direct and indirect lighting shows both the blue and green coloration of this species under light and shadow.  I will have a specimen of this butterfly to study for the drawing so there might be variations to the final piece.
