Check Out This Excerpt From Painting Butterflies & Blooms with Sherry C. Nelson:

Transferring the Design
For each of the projects and vignettes in this book, there is a line drawing to make it easier for you to begin painting. Because accuracy is so essential for making your butterfly and moth paintings realistic, if at all possible, transfer the design from a photocopy of the line drawing given here, not a traced copy.
If you cannot make a photocopy of the design, you will have to trace it. Make as exact a copy as possible, every variation from the line drawing will impact the final appearance of your painting. Use artist’s graphite, sold in sheets in art supply stores, for transferring. It is important to use graphite that is thinner soluble, so you can come back later and clean off the excess graphite.
