Zinnia & Butterfly

Zinnia & Butterfly

Acrylic collage

This collage was inspired by all the lovely zinnias in my garden and the fluttering butterflies this summer. Instead of the usual collage shapes glued onto watercolor paper, I used another Ampersand wood panel in a cradled 1 ½″ inch support. Another difference of this design is that it is square, not a size I usually work with. It is a good idea to design compositions that are challenging. I did change the colors from my original photo and used crimson, cool pinks and reds. There may be a little oil pastel worked into this too.
