Blue Common Buckeye Butterfly (digital painting)

© Letizia Morley 2017

Another butterfly painting…just can’t get enough of them! This is a somewhat more rare type of the Common Buckeye (Junonia coenia) called the Blue Buckey butterfly. Common Buckeyes have mostly drab browns and oranges but the Blue variety have really nice purples and blues to counter the warm browns and oranges. This particular one I chose to paint because of the dazzling variety of colors it has. Mesmerizing patterns, too. The Buckeye butterfly is found throughout North and South America. Just because it’s “Common” doesn’t mean it’s not outstanding!
