This art piece is inspired by the delicate beauty of a tropical butterfly. I decided to focus on light splashes of paint to express delicate movement. I used similar techniques to that of my ballerina pieces as I felt the butterfly could be dancing.
I use a paint brushing effect to work in the charcoal, then let the emotions run free with expressive splashes of paint. Both processes are risky as once it is done, no erasing or painting over can happen. I like the risk involved as it's just like our every day existence- we can't erase our actions. This large piece is ready to hang straight out of the carefully packaged box.
