Peridot Malachite Butterfly Drawing


Created by Sonja as a special tribute to August birthdays. The yellow-green color of the Peridot gem is unique and classic. And Sonja was inspired to draw a similarly magnificent butterfly artwork with tones of bright green, black and dark umber. The Green Malachite Butterfly (Siproeta Stelenes) is featured in this original drawing resting on creamy Gladiola flowers, the birth flower for August.

This artwork is a colored pencil drawing that measures 5" x 7". This original artwork is created with Prismacolor pencils on Strathmore drawing paper. This drawing is for sale with a 1 1/2” white mat and is not framed. 

 Artwork size: 5” x 7” / Mat size: 10” x 8”
