American Painted Lady

American Painted Lady - student project

I decided to build on the butterfly them, but go with a native butterfly species to my area.  The original (with the purple background) built from a triadic colour scheme.  Some of the other colour adjustments were more successful than others, due to the nature of the illustration, however all the techniques learned will have so many additional applications.  I've included all my variations.  I really love the ones with the darker backgrounds.American Painted Lady - image 1 - student projectAmerican Painted Lady - image 2 - student projectAmerican Painted Lady - image 3 - student projectAmerican Painted Lady - image 4 - student projectAmerican Painted Lady - image 5 - student projectAmerican Painted Lady - image 6 - student projectAmerican Painted Lady - image 7 - student projectAmerican Painted Lady - image 8 - student project
