The Scream of the Butterfly

Kristine Vander Velde's avatar Kristine Vander Velde

I am planning a multiple painting entry again this year of 3-5 paintings of butterflies, including a self portrait. The paintings will be no larger than 36"x36". I have have been working exclusively in acrylic, but am trying a multimedia approach to my pieces this year. I've started wit h graphite sketches & have been been trying out watercolor in an experimental manner with crayon resist & graphite. I am also experimenting with the surface & am using torn paper glued to canvas to create a varied textures that will effect the look of the media. The photos posted are rough, preliminary sketches. I plan on using these to construct my own close up compositions of the butterflies. The self portrait is a highly personal depiction of myself. I will add more of a description as I find more appropriate words. Please feel free ti view my work here, on Facebook at Kris is in ArtPrize & samestaleshoes@jimdo.com
