Katie Pertiet Painted Butterfly


Day 85 of #the100dayproject

Managed to carve a few minutes out of my busy schedule to paint up a new butterfly for day 85 of the 100 day project! I love painting with watercolor and pencil sketches in a loose style. It’s very forgiving and helps me break away from my tendencies to keep everything all balanced and lined up. Something that hasn’t been easy to shake from my many many years of corporate design work!

In case you’re just joining me, I’m joining in Victoria Johnson’s subchallenge. She’s a fellow licensing artist and is doing 100 days of birds, butterflies and blooms. That’s my jam, can’t imagine doing much else and have a packed schedule so it’s not the time for me to be doing anything too crazy but I will be exploring different media and styles. I need to keep things calm, simple and happy. She is encouraging just a simple image, nothing polished.

I invite you to follow along and we’ll see if I can complete the 100 days this year! I’ll be posting here as well as on my instagram!
