How to Draw a Butterfly With Pastel – Fine Art-Tips


Hello my friends and welcome to
another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto, and I hope
you are achieving your passion for art. Today we will draw a butterfly. We start by sketching the body and then
the wings of the butterfly, with pencil. The wings have 2 parts on each side. We try to do the ones on the other side looking
similar. Of course you can measure if you want. Once we have the layout in pencil
we can go over it with a marker. Now we fill in the borders
of the wings and the body. Of course this depends on what type
of butterfly you want to do. And now, we are going to color with pastel
this is of the dry type, like chalk. We may also get in other tones, such as violet or a
lighter blue and then smudge them with the finger. And clean up with a kneaded
eraser or a pencil eraser. We need more of the lighter tone
to to achieve some reflections. And even some white if you wish. Before we continue I will spray some fixative,
so as to fix what we have done so far. Over it we can get more
colors, and then smudge them. At this point with a marker
we can go over the black lines. You can draw some shadows with
pencil so that it doesn’t look flat. For this I’m using a 2B lead. The complete list of
materials is in the information below the video. We smudge with a stump. You may get even more color and keep smudging,
depending on the effect you want to achieve. This is real fun, ok, it’s ready! Please let me know what
do you think about it. If you enjoyed it, please give it a LIKE
