I'm linking this to Illustration Friday - the word this week: IDENTICAL.
A quiet Sunday at the easel...
The beginning of a butterfly painting, a gift for someone
going through difficult times...
Painting insects is something i've never done before,
so i hope i render this butterfly as real as i want it to be.
The colors i used when i first began,
for the background and the outline of the butterfly.
Then i added purple and blue for the background...
I think it's gonna look good when i finish the background
and add the orange wings.
The canvas is 20" x 20", so a nice size.
These are not colors that i normally use much.
I do love them here though...
They feel like healing colors to me.
Do you ever work on a painting that just feels like it's eager to be born?
This is one of those paintings.
I'll post the finished piece when it's done.
In the meantime, thanks for stopping by,
and don't forget to hug the ones you love.
