I absolutely loved learning how to paint this gorgeous butterfly design!
Carol talks you very clearly and patiently every step of the way, from creating a wash, painting crisp lines and comma strokes and how to float your colour. These are the basic skills needed to create many folk art designs. The video also shows you the brushes and colours she uses to create the design, so download and transfer the butterfly template and you’re all set to go.
As you practice and gain in confidence, don’t be afraid to experiment with different colourways and personalise your designs. I’ll definitely be adding this butterfly motif into various upcoming projects.
