'Holly Blue' Original


Butterflies! In particular, the Holly Blue butterfly. Painted with real gemstone paints, and what I mean by this is, the actual paint has ground gemstones in it. This adds a natural and subtle glow and shimmer, not to mention a whole new dimension to the colour depth. Specifically I used hematite, amethyst, purpurin, Minnesota pipestone, lapis lazuli and mayan blue.

You are not purchasing a print. It is 8x10" in size. Only 1 available. However you can purchase prints in this piece as well as other illustrated giftware.

I paint these wildlife pieces in my 280+ year old English cottage. My paintings are handmade using high pigmented watercolours to achieve a statement piece of artwork.

Caring for your piece of artwork isn't hard, but bear in mind, if you decide to place your piece in a brightly lit room with a lot of natural light then it will inevitably fade over time.

I believe that pieces of art and gifts should not be defined by monetary value. Instead, they can be defined by sentiment, memories and love. You as the recipient or even if this is for a gift have something to treasure forever without having to pay a fortune for a piece of artwork.
