The Canary Islands Large White, pieris cheiranthi, a butterfly living on the Canary Islands (Spain). It is losing its habitat and is classified as endangered according to the IUCN Red List. It went extinct on Gomera where it used to live and its population is decreasing on the other islands.

This light drawing took me a bit less than 30 minutes, with HB Creta Color Studioline.
