British Butterflies

British Butterflies Notebook

Last month, I was looking through a pile of old paintings I did years ago and saw old butterfly painting, which wasn’t very good. I vaguely remember painting it and got frustrated because I hated it.

I then decided to start painting butterflies again. I looked up the most common butterflies in Britain and listed them. I slowly went through the list painting 8 butterflies in total. They were received well over at my Instagram and I went ahead with my plan to turn them into a print.

I got them printed on notebooks, A4 prints, and A3 prints. I absolutely love the end result. I initially thought about adding handlettered titles like my Culinary Herbs print but I decided against it and let the artwork speak for itself.
