Hello my friends!
Today I am featuring another painting from my gallery. is called "The Caterpillar" and I am fond of this creation. I wish I had a better photo of it to share with you. The sentiment struck a chord with me and was the inspiration for the painting.
This was done on a 12" x 24" gallery style canvas. I used a variety of different brands of acrylic paint. I first painted the background blue, and then, keeping in mind where I was planning on putting the butterflies, added in some more colour. I also did some mark making, drips, used some stencils and stamps with archival ink. Then I created a mask for the large buttterfly using a die I had and some low-tac shelf liner. I added the black into the background, fading it out somewhat at the edges with another stencil. I used the same colours that I used to create the large butterfly to stencil in the parade of winged beauties travelling up the canvas. I used a white paint pen to loosely outline the butterflies. After adding a few more details, I added my sentiment, mounting each line onto black card and finished it off with a spray varnish.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed todays post! You can see a few more of my paintings in my gallery if you are interested. Have an awesome an artful day!
