Description

The morpho peledies is a jewel among insects with their iridescent colouring. Unlike their image in artwork, their beauty is fleeting thanks to a short life span.

About the work

Upon acquiring 3 x 3 inch canvas, I  thought painting insects on them would be most appropriate for the size – tiny art, tiny subject. As such, I made the beautiful morpho peleides butterfly my first subject. I love how iridescent their wing colouring is, and I wanted to see if I could replicate that look myself with acrylic paint. I tried to keep the colouring as realistic as possible, but I couldn’t help adding in a touch more purple than what is generally seen on their wings.
