This is a small watercolor and ink painting that is part of a series of butterflies rare as well as commonplace, found in the British Isles. I have adored and been fascinated with these beautiful and ethereal insects as a child and their magic never fades.

Painted on Fabriano 185lb watercolour paper using Winsor & Newton, and Schmincke Professional watercolour paints and inks Painting size 4.75'' x 6.75'', Total size with white mount and black frame is 9.50'' x 13''
