Butterfly Painting

26 Nov

butterfly paint brushButterfly 2 at Painted church Spent a few hours on Saturday creating a small acrylic butterfly painting for a young couple and their first child, a girl. Here’s an image of the painting and the reference photograph that I took when on a visit to Hawaii a few years back.

Much of it involved glazing techniques which created a luminosity that I was hoping for. For example; for the green I started with a bright turquoise background and then painted yellow on top. Same with butterfly: red and pink with yellow layers on top to create orange.
