AEDM25 Butterfly

 Click image to enlarge!
This is how I started. The butterfly comes from a stencil

Just wanted to share how this Tempera color glows in certain light.

Yep, I destroyed it! Wanted to see if I could turn it "dark". Guess not 😎  But I learned how to use the tape both for holding the paper and to use it for the paint to flow over the edges.

Butterfly!  Guess I´m done for now. I also learned it it possible to wet the paper A LOT and still get away with it 😇

Butterfly in progress, Sorry, I let you see the same piece 4 times. It is sketch paper size A5. If you did not already guess.

A sidenot might be of interest. The board I use for the paper says "SCANIA" on the top. I was working on the SCANIA heavy trucks design department in many years. I designed this bord for making it easy for drivers to sit behind the wheel and make notes. You put the board in your knee and lean it to the wheel. Then you can write comfortly. 😊

  1. Oh for summer and butterflies and flowers. This is really a heart warming piece!

  2. A lesson learned, but I still like the finished piece Monica.

  3. Wow! An inventor! I once met someone who introduced himself as an inventor...an amazingly interesting (humble) man. It's great to know you left a legacy.
    I actually like the contrast between dark and light. It's almost like the onset of Autumn/Winter.
    Have a great day. Cath x

  4. I don't think you destroyed it at all. I like the black finding it's way into the color. Very creative.
