"The delicate colours and tones of the butterflies and the flowers are a challenging subject, best suited to watercolours on paper. I paint the butterflies in their natural habitat and on their caterpillar food plants, keeping the scale at life-size. The favourite habitats of stinging nettles, thistles and brambles have faced devastating attacks from intensive agricultural methods and pollution,  but it is hoped that organic farming and even global warming will allow butterflies to flourish again. Buddleia and Sedum in the garden are also natural habitats for several species of butterfly. It is good to see that some garden centres are encouraging people to plant more of these in their gardens." Glenys Griffiths
