Digital painting of a Starry Night Cracker Butterfly, scientific name: Hamadryas laodamia. It can be found from Mexico all the way to the Amazon basin. I really really love the juxtaposition of the dark blue and light blue areas, as well as the even spacing of the light blue patches. Painted using Procreate app on iPad Pro.
This is a watercolor painting map I did for The Stony Brook School’s magazine. This is a beautiful independent school on Long Island, NY for grades 7-12, boarding and day. The magazine was featuring the trees planted on the campus and I was asked to paint a map that showcased the greenery in addition to the buildings.
In an alternate publication, this is my map printed in the arboretum walking trail guide with just descriptions of the trees. Interesting how the colors came out differently on this one.
