This is a beginner friendly class on how to paint a monarch butterfly with acrylic paints. Below you will find the materials list, reference photos and even a free downloadable pattern. The link to the video is at the very end of this post.
Materials list for this class:
Acrylic paint brushes: I’ll be using a large (1in) and a medium (1/2in) Flat brushes, medium and small round brushes and a spotter (just like a round brush but bristles are shorter, you can use a round brush for that as well)
Acrylic paints, craft quality, nothing fancy. Colors: white, black, phthalo blue, phthalo green, lemon yellow, primary yellow, primary red, magenta.
Use this pdf below for a spliced pattern to fit a 16 by 20 canvas. Only print pages 2-5.
Here is a reference photo
And a black and white to see darker/lighter areas easier
