Original Monarch Butterfly in Ink and Ochre Pigment
One of my most favorite pieces that I’ve ever done, I struggled to decide to keep or sell this.
The piece is drawn in Micron permanent, waterproof ink on multi-media art paper. The color is a natural ochre pigment from the Roussillon hills in the Provence region of France. The powders are mixed with water. The result is the muted natural color you see here.
Much like a real butterfly, try not to touch, as the pigments are chalky and can be transferred slightly to anything it touches.
Signed in block letters with year only.
Paper size 9” x 12”, actual art size 9” x 7”
