I truly enjoyed creating the Morpho butterfly, especially seeing them in the rainforests in Costa Rica. Your instructions were easy to follow and the illustrations as well. The booklet of instructions is good quality. Thank you I am now starting the Lemons and Glass Joni Wartchow Bella Vista Arkansas

Beware of Pencil Labels

I learned quite a lot from this tutorial. One issue that arose was that my butterfly was much greener than the example. My set of prismacolor pencils did not contain powder blue and cerulean blue. I substituted cloud blue and light cerulean blue and these were satisfactory. For the others I took the same pencils by name without actually checking the colors. For light aqua the color in my set was far greener than that in the color swatch as in the photo. I am a novice but I tried to fix this excess of green. I tried to overlay blues but this produced only minor improvement. Somewhat better effect came from using white as a blender. The result is attached.

Jumpstart Blue Morph Butterfly

I used this in teaching a beginners Colored pencil class to adults. It worked out very well with supplemental exercises that I produced. If you don't teach with additional handouts, I would give at least 4 hours for the class. This would include transferring. I think the class got a lot out of this Beginners workbook because it introduced layering colored pencils, but with using similiar colors as well as other basic concepts. Why invent the wheel in teaching, when you have these wonderful packets to complement what you are teaching? Each students had the booklet to carry home, since most had some still to go, plus all the tips on CP that they can go over again. The price is very resonable if you buy as a classroom pack of 10 or more. I plan to do another in the next step level to build on what they learned here.
