New Butterflies

It’s always nice to be able to start to create a series of new works and I have wanted to explore further my insects. Here I have started on two new pieces using a Red Admiral butterfly with a Hollyhock flower. I just love the movement and colour on these pretty flowers.

To carry on the theme of an English cottage garden I will also be looking at a small Tortoise shell butterfly and a flowering Cosmos. Both these flowers really feel like a wild cottage garden and I can just picture the butterflies flitting between the flowers and dancing on the wind.
