12×12 acrylic on stretched canvas, framed.
The underwings of two California butterflies, Lorquin’s Admiral and Gulf Fritillary, are featured against a marbled swirl of russet, browns and silver. This is one of my hybrid acrylic paintings. For those, I first create a poured acrylic painting for the background. Later, once that’s dry, I use a brush with acrylics to paint something realistic on top.
