Glass Wing Butterfly Buy @ Fairweather Home and Gallery in Seaside
Watercolor on Watercolor Canvas 20 x 16 x 5/8.
Purchase directly through the Fairweather Gallery.
Using the webbing and spraying of concentrated watercolor pigments first I added the butterfly, bird of paradise bush and created the leaves from the marks left by the webbing. It was interesting to get the finished look to the butterfly wings since they are literally see-through and still be able to see the body. The canvas accepts the concentrated pigments and the trick is adding layers to the surface.
