Blue Morpho

Unframed fine art print

A beautiful print, of a wonderfully colourful oil painting, depicting the movement of the very large and iconic blue morpho butterflies of Costa Rica. Flying butterflies are hard enough to focus on in the UK, let alone in the rainforests of Costa Rica, yet this artwork captures that feeling perfectly. The print (including mount) measures 20 x 16 inches, which is a standard size, so frames can be bought off the shelf in many retailers, such as Ikea.

Unframed fine art print

“For years, I have wanted to find a way to capture the beauty of butterflies and avoid the artwork looking twee. Butterflies are almost too beautiful to paint. However, I felt confident enough, with the transparency style, to attempt a butterfly painting. As we were in Costa Rica, using the country’s most iconic butterfly (Morpho menelaus or blue morpho) for inspiration, just had to be done. It was trying to balance the sense of movement, with the correct level of detail, that was at the core of this piece. The more detail included, the more pinned in place the images became, losing movement. I’m relatively pleased with the outcome, so there will be more butterfly paintings on the way.”

All fine art prints are painstakingly colour matched, printed and mounted by the artist himself. The prints are done on 100% cotton, fine art paper using specialist, colourfast inks, ensuring the highest possible durability of this beautiful image.

The finished unframed print measures 51cm x 40cm (20″ x 16″).
