The Elder and the Butterfly

Here is a painting I did for school of an elder with a butterfly. The assignment was to paint a head and hands, similar to my Uma Thurman painting I did last year. Having a new painting teacher we got a similar assignment, but allowed more freedom in terms of painting and combining images. (The butterfly and elder reference were from separate pictures) This was also good painting practice for drapery, leading into our next assignment of learning the different kinds of folds. I could have worked more on defining the hands and wrist area, but overall, I'm quite happy with the piece.


Just because Haiku's are cool:

"The elder's thirsty.
Butterfly found the water,
The elder followed."
