Canvas / Mixed Media / Oil Paint
In this piece I wanted to keep the openness of the colorful environment as welcoming as I could. The representational butterflies were my own creations attempting to create three different responses from each as they flew away from their life source.
The canvas itself is heavily textured and then sanded down which allows the oil paint to really polish up and give a reflective shine. I added slender lines that crossed each other and began to make composition decisions. Below is a photo of the tones.
