Butterfly and Zinnia

Butterfly Sketch/ oil on canvas board/ 7 x 5/

I love butterflies (so much so that I grow host food just to raise (and give away) caterpillars). I have painted many butterfly paintings. However, most end up recycled because they are too "tight" and detailed. I am so pleased with the looseness of this little butterfly. I also love this bright palette of colors
Art note: Can you see that the shadowed wing is "warmer" than the wing in the light (that has more cool white)? (cool light=warm shadows)
