15x15 Gold Dragonfly by Liana Yarckin
Happy Friday! Hope you are having a fall! September was a nice little break for me and now I am in full swing of preparing for art shows.
Right now I have a list of things to paint that I am painting with a set of deliciously glittery metallic paints in 6 different shades of gold to silver. An artist friend surprised me with them. First, I used them delicately over non-metallic paint on butterfly wings. Then, recently, a client said she would like a butterfly but her colors are just gold and white. Knowing I would not get much depth or varying shades of value, I thought about how could I make a gold butterfly interesting. I added gold leaf! Gold leaf, the bane of my existence. It is such a tedious process which requires an enormous amount of patience from me. However, I am finding it almost meditative. The photos do not do it justice because of the reflective nature. The paper is always reflecting cool blue even though it is warm white and if you take the photo straight on, the gold sometimes reflects the darks in front of it.
Anyway, they must have translated somehow on my instagram. After posting the butterfly, I immediately received a commission for a bee. While painting the bee, I painted a dragonfly since I have been seeing so many dragonflies wherever I am outside. All framed in a 20x20" mat gold frame.
