Blossom and Butterflies, watercolour


Blossom and Butterflies captures the essence of spring. It is one of six nature and wildlife paintings representing blossom or bamboo with a Japanese touch

Using a technique involving multiple washes of paint, I aimed to achieve a gentle transition from peach to green in the background, setting the stage for the delicate subjects.

The blossom, with its delicate petals is the focus of this painting, evoking a sense of renewal and vitality. What makes this piece unique is the subtle inclusion of butterflies, camouflaged within the painting, adding an element of surprise and intrigue.

I was inspired by a course on Japanese blossom and sessions on still life. The result is a painting that blends traditional techniques with a contemporary flair.

This piece serves as a perfect representation of spring, offering viewers a glimpse into its beauty and tranquility. I hope that this painting will brings a sense of joy and serenity to any space.
