Large geometric butterfly collage in box frame

For Christmas my brother has requested a 3D butterfly collage. He loves the shadows produced in the different light conditions. The only stipulation was that it be all white, and in a circle format. I had a 50×50 cm box frame to fill, that is a lot of butterflies to cut and shape. So last week while poorly I did the only thing I could manage, and punched out many butterflies, nearly 200! I then sat in front of the TV ( you have to love judge Rinder) and got to folding each butterflies wings. Finally on Tuesday I got positioning and gluing into the circular geometric pattern. The only problem was I had too many cats thinking they might be of help, and to be honest, I was not keen on their input… hair in a crisp white box frame, or worse still little muddy feet, was not in my brothers brief!

I took some photos today, and with the right lighting I can see some great shadows will be produced.

I have called it ‘Neutral suspense ‘

Happy Christmas to my brother Will xxx

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

    I think the cat’s help paid off, Rebecca – this is beautiful. I do like its whiteness – it allows the shadows to really come into their own. I’m sure Will will love it!

  3. Aww thank you Jacob, glad you like it. Maybe I should employ the cats to watch over me more often?
