Butterfly Woman ~ xPost Abs/Con


9x12 India inks and charcoal on Canson 140 lb cold press paper done this afternoon, another in my series of women. This imaginary contemporary woman has multiple colors in the background for her hair and fluttering butterflies. Her proportions are not exact as this is not a photorealistic work. I like working with Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay inks and my acrylic brushes; inks can be thinned with water and perform identical to watercolors or acrylics. When dry they are permanent, lightfast, and shiny.
C&C welcome

This is stunning Kay! The colors breathe life into this painting - her contemplative look is superb - she is someone I would want to know. An interesting woman indeed. I think this is one of my favorites of yours

Nice! She looks so calm amidst that explosion of intense color.

I like those Bombay pigmented India inks. I rediscovered a couple of bottles and would like to have the primaries.

Seeing this again, it still engages. Love it. I enjoy the confident line quality, and the composition has that lovely close-up cropped view which draws the viewer into the picture. (Reminds a bit of a famous South African painter Irma Stern).

Van and John, many thanks. I'll have to look up Ms. Stern.
