2. Main characteristics of the butterfly. Use the thick round brush and black paint to paint the body on the nasal bone and the head on the forehead, between the eyebrows. Blur the lines at the wing root with stroking movements outwards. Finally, draw the feelers with the thin brush.

3. Contour the butterfly. Use the thick round brush to draw the outlines of the wings in black. Make the lines thicker from the outer edge above and below and make small curves into the inside of the wing. This creates the typical butterfly wing contour.

5. Give the finishing touches. Set individual accents in purple on the inside of the wing. Apply the paint again with stroking movements from the outside inwards. Dab white dots on the outer edge of the wing with the brush. A little glitter really makes the wings shine!
