Modern intense butterfly painting “Hesperis numberwing” is inspired by the contrasting, strong wings of the Callicore hesperis butterfly. When I started painting a series of butterfly-inspired paintings, I thought I would use many bright colours. Unexpectedly, the pastels that I buy most often are deep, dark blues, violets, purples, blacks, and browns. An excellent example of this is the Callicore hesperis butterfly, its wings shine with intense, cold yellow and huge patches of red, but those patches of colour are surrounded by greenish grays and blacks. To emphasize the colours and add drama, the whole composition is hung on a matte black background, red and yellow shine like street lights on a dark, starless night.
This painting will perfectly complement a modern interior. Although inspired by nature, it is very intense, simple, and geometric. The colours, shapes, and moods are far from the romantic image of meadows and butterflies they bring to mind cityscape, modern buildings, and neons with a hint of primitive, raw art.
