Graceful butterfly painting Sephisa chandra (the eastern courtier). The remarkably contrasting pattern on the butterfly’s wings is reminiscent of stained-glass. Orange, yellow, and cream spots of colour are enclosed in a navy blue contour. Against a dark brown,textured background, the wings seem to glow. This butterfly impresses with its elegance and expressiveness.
Despite the spot’s simplicity, drawing on the wings of this butterfly is not boring. It differs from many of my paintings, where the multitude of colours permeate and mix, it is a calm, strong, even dignified composition. Paintings with a smaller colour palette often surprise me and become one of my favourite works. This painting is perfect for a room full of greenery, its organic patterns on the wings will harmonize wonderfully with the leaves of the flowers.
