Butterflies and moths are the flowers of the sky. In their short lives they inspire us to try to capture their fleeting beauty with our paints and brushes. This workbook strives, through step by step demonstrations, to show both beginning and more advanced artists how to use gouache to record every little detail of their beautifully patterned wings.
You'll start with painting a section of a Buckeye's wing to practice the use of technical skills. Then you'll go on to the three demonstrations -- the Monarch, the Tiger Swallowtail and the Cecropia Moth.
