February’s sketchbook Challenge theme is opposites. I did a couple of sketches, one is of butterflies, who would of guessed. I did a black swallowtail, a painted lady, a couple of made up, not true monarchs. The small butterflies are on 2.5″ x 3.5″ watercolor paper, about artist trading card size. All four are done in watercolor and black felt tip pen. I’m going with the fact that butterflies have wings on the opposite sides of their bodies. The second one I did is the red cardinal, the contrast of this bright red cardinal and the neutral winter landscape are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Also included an image of my February create a calender page. For February I did pansies, once again in graphite a 5B and a blending stump. As always, thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy what I’ve shared.
