Antique Butterflies

Today I've been experimenting with Modeling paste and a Charcoal stick.
These Butterflies turned out pretty good. I love the Antique look!

Butterflies by Night

These Butterflies turned out a lot different from what I usually paint.
I tried to challenge myself by using a lot of black this time…in the end I decided to bright them up with some silver, purple and violet.

Painted on watercolor paper and framed in Silver frame 40x50 cm.

First painting of 2014

December was busy. I spent a week in Copenhagen visiting my parents and had a wonderful time. I also finished a painting commission on a large 100x120 cm canvas.
The week before Christmas both our daughters came home from University… Family time!

I'm so happy to be back on track painting again.

This is the first painting of 2014…Butterflies of course!

It's 40x50 cm and framed in an silver frame with passe-partout.
