Butterfly on Buddleia

This is a picture i did last year, drawn in coloured pencils.  I used a reference photo of a butterfly to draw it and then added my own buddleia and background, and i don’t think it turned out too badly.  The butterfly has ended up slightly bigger on one side than the other but never mind.  I like the colours, and the furry body of the butterfly.  I think butterflies are great subjects for artwork because they come in so many beautiful colours and patterns.

    I think the background looks amazing, it really brings the butterfly out.
