30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day Sixteen

"Butterfly, Bee, and Baritone" LWatry©2014
Day Sixteen of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. This painting is "Butterfly, Bee, and Baritone".

I masked the bee and butterfly and some of the shiny spots on the baritone. A baritone is like a small tuba. I decided to zoom into the baritone instead of showing a larger view so that you could see the bee and butterfly better.

I started by painting the baritone on the right side and then laying down the other various grays. I make my own gray mixes. One of my favorites mixes is cobalt blue, permanent rose, and aureolin yellow.

The bee and butterfly are a nice compliment to the shiny metal.

This painting, "Butterfly, Bee, and Baritone" is a 6"x6" watercolor and is available on Daily Paintworks for $150 (framed). Click here to purchase.


  1. Lovely job Lorriane - you have your shiny spots down!!

  2. Bonjour,

    Très jolie aquarelle... Une harmonie de couleurs magnifiques. J'aime le travail du papillon et de l'abeille qui se reflètent sur le corps du baryton.
    ❁ Gros bisous ❁
