I have recently been trying out an app on my iPad called Procreate. It is a pared down, intuitive digital painting app made specifically for iPads that, in my opinion, perfectly mimics traditional mediums. There are hundreds of different brushes and effects, and here I’ve used felt-tip pen, spray paint, charcoal and watercolor brushes to create this painting of a red-spotted purple butterfly. Its scientific name is Limenitis arthemis astyanax, member of the admiral butterfly family, native to the Eastern United States.
