fierce butterfly

Did this sketch yesterday while the boys were splashing in the pool. I intended to draw the beautiful blooms on my pitiful (stomped on by the dogs) clematis, but got distracted by an idea I had several years ago but didn’t have the skills to accomplish.

Painted in Photoshop. Took a few hours. Still not sure I accomplished what’s in my head, but close enough.
