Bhavna, Doina and Batman, your butterflies are wonderful  :clap: and I also like the background. I think especially the flower is also very beautiful.  :yippee:

 :thankyou: Martina. I didn't go for the ultra smooth green Dennis did. He said about simulating foliage in the background or something like that. And I just thought that a rougher background for the green made more sense.

I've now updated to the image with the extra shadow on the body of the orange butterfly.

I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

Nice Doina and Batman. Bryce your two small butterflies are well executed. Both keepers!

Was there a colored picture of the butterflies on line here?  I couldn't find it anywhere.

You will have to pause the replay for now because the butterflies are cut out and placed in Dennis imaginary style.

Well.... I decided I just had to finish salvaging my poor flutterbies.  :eek: I've patched up as much as I can, just have to finish the last butterfly, and then.....I'll post it. Don't be expecting any miracles here guys...but it is good for a chuckle!  ;D
Cheers, Val

Finally back to painting.  Here's my rendition of the Butterfly lesson.  Hope you like it.  THe large butterfly is a little on the leggy side.

Ok, so.... here is the attempted 'repaired' butterfly.  :eek:   I decided I'll just do another one later. Got rid of the pawprints, managed to cover his glorious cauliflower (much better than mine  :envy: ), might have to give him my crown!  ;D

Here is the 'Artisticat' otherwise known as 'culprit' checking out our next adventure....
  I don't see it     
  Sure is taking its time     
  Looks like a turtle

Great job painting butterflies, everybody!   :clap: :clap: :clap:    O0 :smitten: :1hug:

Val, if I had a darling kitty around, I'd never get any painting done and it wouldn't be the cat's fault.  I just couldn't resist playing, petting and cuddling with Kitty.   :2funny:   

Your Atisticat/Culprit is a curious cutie!   :smitten:
