Draw a Monarch
Step 2: developing observational skillsdeveloping observational skills
To develop good observation skills and understanding of monarchs, look closely at the references you have.

Notice the details of the butterfly:

  •  
  • How big is its body? What shape is it?
  •  
  • Where are the patterns on the wings? Do you see any veins?
  •  
  • Where are the eyes? What shape are they?
    Lightbulbs go off when you draw. You notice things that you might never have noticed otherwise!
