Butterfly Drawing and Blow Painting
Follow these steps to sketch your butterfly.
Draw a butterfly or two in pencil first.
1
Go over your sketch in ink with a calligraphy pen. Mix thick and thin lines.
2
Paint a light background layer with watercolor or ink.
3
While the first layer dries, practice the next step. Paint a line with lots of water. Then blow it using a straw.
4
Try it on the butterfly. Point the straw where you want the splash to go.
5
Now, tap in a second color if you want to blend colors.
6
And you're finished!
Now, you can try a few more colors.
