Metamorphosis Series . . . Butterflies!

For my Every Day Matters Sketchbook, I use the Global Arts Square Notebook – just a little 6″x6″ I can carry around with me and my beloved Pitt Pens by Faber Castell. I don’t typically draw in pencil first – I go straight for the ink and embrace my mistakes! For my watercolors, I use theSchmincke Horadam Watercolor Set but you don’t have to go right for the pricey ones at first.  TheSakura Koi Watercolor Set is the perfect size to carry around and is not a huge investment.  Plus it has purple which most sets don’t, so that’s always a good thing!

    Your butterflies are so nice! I can tell you care about them a lot. You just have to make the trip to Gainesville and go through the museum – with your sketchpad. They have a nice restaurant in the museum for lunching and then you can go through the art museum, also. The Florida Natural History is next door and since I know you have nothing to do with your days, you can just make a day of it. (Or maybe just paint a quick sketch looking out the door to your imagination in your journal. )

      I love that idea Mary – and it is definitely on my Florida "to do" list, thanks to you! It sounds like a perfect Artsy Field Trip!
