Butterflies of the western united states. art
I am drawing 26 to 30 butterflies with black pen and ink and colored pencils. some of them will be from the endangered species list,
Hello, my name is Roger Leigh Price, I am starting this project to raise awareness of the plight of the butterfly by drawing 26 to 30 different butterfly pictures. I will draw them with pen and ink, and colored pencils. I sometimes have to mix different colors to achieve the true color for each butterfly. The drawings will be of various butterflies of the western united states and about half of them will be on the endangered species list. There are many reasons they are endangered, loss of habitat and insecticides are two of the main reasons. These drawings will eventually become a book. For now they are suitable for wall decorations, inspiring gifts, or to use in a classroom.
I am breaking this project into 2 stages. The first stage will encompass drawing the actual pictures, and setting them up as 8x10 prints on 100 lb acid free paper with 200 year archival ink, matted to 11x14, with a heavy backer board,suitable for framing. I will use an artisan printer with 6 different color archival ink cartridges. each print will be personally signed with ballpoint pen. So far I have five to offer as gifts for donors. Eventually the completed drawings will become a book with an illustration on one page and a paragraph or two about the subject on an adjoining page. this will be the second stage of the project at a later date.
