Australian Painted Lady Butterfly on Pink Flowers - Oil Painting
This painting was based on a flower I came across on one of my walks.
I added the Australian Painted Lady Butterfly to make this composition a bit more interesting. My painting was created in the style of the Old Masters, using a black and white under painting first, then applying transparent coats of oil paint over it. There are many coats of paint needed to produce that beautiful deep green seen in the background. The results are a painting that appears to have a 3D effect, and you can look into it, rather than at it
