Watercolor butterflies

This past weekend, I went out, surrounded myself with nature, and sat down to paint.  I didn't really know what I was going to paint, so it was fun to end up with these simple watercolor butterflies.  I started with Daniel Smith Indigo, then let my intuition guide me in picking additional colors to mix in the wet washes.  The last step involved dropping little bits of Tibet and Moon gold for that special magic.  I was delighted to find that the outcome was as pleasing as the process!
