Jessi's Butterfly

This is a butterfly painting I did to try to improve upon another painting of the same butterfly that I did.  Well, even though this one is nice, the other one just has a quality that I couldn’t duplicate. 

I did make some mistakes in the eye/top of the butterfly area that were impossible to remove because this is painted on Fredrix Watercolor canvas and it doesn’t erase.  I have decided that the shadows of the other eyes are the shadows of the ones that came before this one, the butterflies that made this butterflies life possible.  We all have those people in our lives!
