The background on this painting was printed first, then the butterfly was printed on top. I used lino and waterbased ink. I painted white ink on top of the butterfly shape, then carefully drew around it with black ink, making the buttefly stand out against the darker background. This is one of two small paintings using the same lino butterfly design.
