Bold and alluring butterfly painting, Cethosia cyane, (the Leopard lacewing). It is a vivid and intense image with an expressive pattern. The butterfly is hanging on a dark, drawn background. The red and yellow spots on the wings vibrate. Red is juicy and quite flat, and yellow goes from cooler tones to warmer shades closer to orange. It is an image with large contrasting spots. The balance of the composition is added by delicate cream shades, sometimes there is also a subtle blue, which seems to be an intruder in this composition and which at the same time attracts the eye and adds character to the whole. Dark, deep tones give the work its character.
