Kristin #44, camouflage

I did this painting from some photos I took upon the discovery of a well-camouflaged butterfly hiding in a Sorrel plant on a hike this summer. It was a challenge to make the butterfly be visible but also look like the plant in paint.
7 x 9", acrylic on paper

Again Kristin, nice composition and depth from your highlights on the mountains to the cool red of the flower with the spots of bright blue. It is so subtly colorful.

Very nice painting - I am in awe of the depth of field that you have captured.
