Unidentified butterfly

Gouache on 35.5 x 51 cm 100% cotton rag

I have no idea what species this is – a small blue butterfly photographed in May in northern Spain. I just liked the idea of trying to reproduce the intricate patterning of the underwing. The flowers are also not orchids (Allium spp).
