This illustration is of the beautiful Leopard Lacewings butterfly. This image was originally captured last year on a photo shoot at the butterfly farm in Penang called Entopia. It was a great day of shooting nature photography so I decided to paint one of the images from that day. This Leopard Lacewings butterfly looks amazing with its wings spread and sitting on a single green branch. I love the pattern on the wings with its incredible orange color. The purple watercolor textured background was added separately later. Check out my website: accaciastudio.com
