Here are some photos you can use to be inspired by, paint, draw, collage. add to. You can take a portion of the photo and do something with that, if you wish or add a few things also.

These are photos from the image library here at Wet Canvas. I was hoping for some black and whites, but couldn't find any. If anyone has a couple that are not copyrighted, please add them.

Let's see what you can do with these...and let us see what you come up with.

Thank you oldrockchick

Just made it! Phew. A small pen and wash sketch of the butterfly.


Its not a very good drawing of the butterfly because I switched between the photo and an identification guide...its a comma butterfly.

However, I thought it might be good to start a full project on butterflies for June...

We can also continue this project into June as we all seem to have been unable to get to it in May!! The result of committments elsewhere..:D :D

Didn't try to do anything special, just trying to use watercolors, which is a always difficult to control . And that maybe is the secret, let loose and let water.

I'm really loosing it.
Thought I complimented June on her butterfly.

June, lovely line work, seems almost like a song the rhythm is so pretty to follow along. Just like a real butterfly, dancing across the greens of nature!
