Yellow Swallowtail

Original butterfly tusche wash painting artwork, Yellow Swallowtail, created within a multilayered powdery dry pigment process as I embraced changes within my artwork – both technique and subject.

Embracing the hope for change and peace, butterflies are symbollic of change at a time when I was exploring new subject matter within my dry tusche wash painting technique. It seemed too easy to simply drop powdery tusche wash pigment creating an abstract image, I chose the extremely difficult adventure to create the fine details created naturally within the yellow swallowtail butterfly.
