|I have been commissioned to paint a series of four little butterfly paintings and I was fortunate to have the opportunity to use my own reference photos! I have been wanting to paint more butterflies and now I have no more excuses. |
The specimen featured in this painting was from a photo I had taken several years ago at our local butterfly gallery at Science North. The Great Mormon is a common species of swallowtail which comes from tropical Asia.
