Free Butterfly Painting Design from DecoArt Americana
Butterflies can be painted in a rainbow of colours in a variety of settings. This gorgeous Majestic Monarch is available as a free pattern from DecoArt Paints. The artist, Jeanne Collick has captured this regal butterfly in a field of rich, springtime colours.
We suggest highlighting the monarch's browns and oranges by painting this on a basswood plaque featuring a rustic outer edge. Americana Colours used are: Cadmium Yellow, Georgia Clay, Terra Cotta, Lamp Black, Evergreen, Dioxazine Purple, Yellow Light, Golden Straw, Green Mist, Warm White, Mustard Seed, Green Tea and Spicy Mustard. Mediums used are: Multi-Purpose-Sealer, DuraClear Satin Varnish, Faux Glazing Medium and Dazzling Metallics Emporer's Gold. Browse more free project plans on DecoArt's website.
