On the eve of the eve of Christmas, friends came over. For the first half of the evening the guys were watching football on TV. We were supposed to have watched a video of a local movie "881". So while waiting for the show to begin I decided to draw these butterflies from my book on butterflies. Black and white does not do justice to the lovely colours on the wings. These drawings are just preliminaries so that I may be able to paint them one of these days.
