Artwork description:

Firstly I created a watercolour painting whilst looking at pictures of peonies on a summer's day in the garden. I painted different swirling lines and shapes, in pinks, oranges, greens and creams, and as well as watercolours, I also used white acrylic, gold ink, and gold leaf.

Each of the three dimensional butterflies is punch-cut from the watercolour painting and decoratively arranged in a graduating colour square in the centre of the frame.
They are attached to heavy watercolour paper within a white glazed deep box frame

The result is a vibrant and colourful modern relief design revealing individual butterflies on closer inspection, with different shadows cast from the up-turned wings depending on the direction of the light.

Materials used:

Watercolour, gold ink, gold leaf, and white acrylic on watercolour paper, in a white glazed (glass) deep box frame
