Butterfly girl



Pin It
Butterfly girl
"Butterfly girl", 35x30cm, acrylic on canvas on panel
























It's been a while since I worked in acrylics but this painting was created for a competition for Atelier magazine. One of the rules stated that the painting should be created in acrylics.
Now I know why I like oils so much :)
The best 300 entries will be on exhibit in the CODA-museum in Apeldoorn from the 29th of September 2012 until the 6th of Januari 2013. Hopefully this painting will be part of the exhibit..

Hei Erik, you did a good job with this painting, I am sure you will get selected, unless the jury has a bad taste. I agree with you about the oils

Hoi Erik:) Wat een supergaaf gezicht heeft dit meisje. En prachtig dat blonde haar. Zelfs de rups op haar T-shirt is mooi. Ik geef je een hele goede kans! Wedden? Heel veel succes!
