Monarch Butterfly on Frostweed

MonarchOnFrostWeed

10″ x 10″ Acrylic impasto on canvas paper, linealist style. 2015. Pigment applied using palette knife only. Attempting techniques learned in Maria Lyle’s Illustration Techniques class last year at ACC. Referencing a work photo I took last autumn in my yard, when we had an unusually heavy butterfly migration through here lasting several weeks.
