"These colors are simply mind blowing! Did you colorize or is this the real leaf colors??" Unknown
Wild Dock! These are the actual colors of this plant! I found them while walking along the brook. The butterfly in the middle was originally part of the leaf below it and was originally black. It had that basic butterfly shape so I expanded upon it. The butterfly on the right is a flopped version of the one in the middle. Since the leaves looked like fire, it only seemed fitting to make the butterflies flame blue which makes them pop out beautifully! Yellow flowers are the wild flower Birdsfoot Treefoil. Flowers in upper corners are Bedstraw. Pink flowers are wild aster. I loved making the three little bugs! Used pieces of the butterflies for their wings.
As leaves are biodegradable and will fade and deteriorate quickly, original Art is scanned immediately after creation, preserving their beauty long after originals are gone. Enjoy!
