With June being the month of 30 Days Wild I thought it would be a good idea for the next few Two Uses Tuesday posts to be wildlife-centric, which I know won't be too hard as I often end up creating something inspired by nature, but it's a challenge I wanted to set myself for this time around, so for this week's post I decided to sketch out a little tortoiseshell butterfly and try to emulate their pretty colouring.
I love the mixture of oranges and yellows and I tried to blend it all in as much as I could, but I think this one turned out quite well. The next challenge will be to capture this kind of look using some watercolours! This time around I just drew the butterfly outline free-hand and added in all of the details using some colouring pencils.
I'm linking up with the lovely Stella and Sarah for Two Uses Tuesday this week, and a big extra thank you to them for featuring me in this week's round-up, which you can view here!
Have a lovely start to the week!
