Art Sketches of Monarch Butterfly Butterflies...



Here are some of my sketches of monarch butterflies.  I'm planning on incorporating some into a Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead painting that I am in the drawing stages of.  The monarch butterly has some interesting symbolism in Mexico, their migration symbolizes the return of loved ones.  I thought they would be very fitting in DOTD art.  I doubt I'll finish it in time for that holiday this year, but it's a project I feel like working on right now, so I'm going with that feeling...


I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:
