Birdwing Butterfly Ornitopthera priamus

Here is the watercolor painting of the birdwing butterfly Ornitopthera priamus that I saw when I was guiding a British tourist in the north coast area of Manokwari regency. The insect was collecting nectar from hibiscus flower. It did not stay still when hanging on the flower. Actualy it was 'floating' in the air with its wings continue to flutter. The butterfly needed a few seconds to collect the nectar before moving to another flower.
There are two versions of the artworks, i.e. the watercolor and the vector drawing which I made using Inkscape. I usually make manual drawing and add some colors with my Derwent watercolour pencils as a study before continuing the process to digital illustration.
Birdwing Butterfly

In the past, I used Macromedia Freehand MX but now I use Inkscape.
This butterfly illustration is now available as printed products in the form of t-shirts, hats, cell phone case, travel mug, and even pendant necklaces in my zazzle butterfy goods.
You could support my art creation works by ordering some of them.

The above product is a teapot that is made of bright white porcelain. I hope that you like it.
