Step 1: Trace Your Image
use carbon paper to trace your image onto your canvas.
Step 2: Extend the Lines
if your image is smaller than your canvas, extend the lines of the twigs, etc so it touches the edge of the canvas
Step 3: Create a Gradient
start painting the butterfly by painting a gradient - check out the video for more details
Step 4: Fill in the Background
paint the background in whatever colour you'd like. to find out how to make a blurry background, check out the video
Step 5: Paint the Flower
for this step you don't have to make the flower very detailed because it is not the main focus in the picture - a blurry painted flower will work better because this will make the butterfly stand out more
Step 6: Add the Black
add the black lines - for more details on how to do this, check out the video
