since it's fall and there are so many gorgeous colors to enjoy in nature i thought of painting a colorful butterfly painting with my class using a lot of fall-inspired colors. The frame is a metallic copper acrylic paint, i think it's the first time i've used metallic paint since the gold and silver watercolors i used in elementary school. i think i like it especially in contrast with the teal sky.
i took the first picture before i had made the finishing touch of adding a glass pebble as the butterfly's eye. i should've probably taken another photo of the entire picture now that it's finished. but at least i took a detail shot to show you the eye.
