This little guy on the colorful and very happy background is "In The Treetop" which I think fits him just perfectly. I had a blast working on the background and loved the technique so much that I'm considering using it on a larger painting in the future.
"Winged Beauty" is of course another Monarch butterfly. I seem to be on a roll with these floating beauties lately, I'm really enjoying painting them.
For this background my goal was "earthy" and I think the colors and textures worked out just great for what I was tryiing to achieve. I would consider using this on a larger painting as well but I'm not sure yet, it was a tough background to achieve and even more so to paint on. Time will tell I suppose!
I hope you like the newest nature inspired paintings..........ENJOY!!!
