Impressionist oil painting Chamomile and Monarch Butterflies

I painted this in April 2016. It's a 24 by 26 inch oil painting. Check out the close up images.

 

 

I prepared the canvas with a mixture of marble dust and gesso that i move around to created a stucco like texture. After that is totally dry I painted in oil.  Here are two videos.

I did not tape everything I just don't have the time to do that. But it gives you a good idea of my oil painting style. I like the impressionist approach, but I do have my own unique style. I'm not trying to totally emulate that wonderful impressionist era but rather be inspired by it.

I had painted a large acrylic a while back just with that motive. Bunches of butterflies and a field of chamomile and assorted flowers. The painting is very popular as print.

I decided to paint it also in oil.

The painting is finished now. you can buy it from my website ginettecallaway.com

I am an independent, self supporting artist and Renaissance woman, working full time on my art. I absolutely love what I do. Creating art consumes me. I paint original art with oil paints, watercolors, also ink and pastel. Additionally I use the photos of my art or scans to create mixed media, where I use digital tools to layer texture or change the colors of these original paintings. Not a day goes by where I don't create something new. My original paintings are on ginettecallaway.com My art prints are on ginetteprints.com and over 1000 pieces or art prints, that includes some of my earlier work and many abstract pieces are on http://www.imagekind.com/artists/GinetteCallaway/all/fine-art-prints
