Swallowtail on a cone flower

Hello all,

Here is a painting I have been "working" on for the past few weeks. Drawing takes me forever, and the painting not so much...LOL. It was done on Arches 140 lb., cold press with mostly W&N paints. A photo was used as a reference.

Any C&C appreciated, and most of all, thanks for looking.

Beautiful work on the flower. The colours on the Swallowtail look a bit muted on my monitor.

Love this one with such exactness in both the butterfly and the bloom! Super!

Re: Swallowtail on a cone flower

Thank you Doug, Kay, Bertoni, Oldey, and Joan for commenting and giving me such wonderful feedback.

I am now trying new-to-me water soluble oils and trying to replicate the same painting but in this new medium.

Hopefully the results will be just as rewarding.

Thanks again all for being so kind and for viewing.
