Leonora de Lange - "Butterflies"
Oil on Canvas

Approx. Weight: 1.5kg

This painting was done from photos taken on Lake Kariba and i was inspired by the beautiful colours of the butterflies and their grace, as well as the blurred background
I am a versatile artists enjoying various mediums and subject matter. I try to capture whatever inspires me at the moment - If I visit the bush or see a beautiful wild animal, I am inspired to capture the expression and mood of the creature, if I'm in a beautiful or exciting place, I love to capture the colours and excitement of the moment. Children at play, a lovely or interesting face, a beautiful sunset or the continuous movement of the waves of the ocean are all inspiring subjects. I also enjoy some abstract work, creating a pleasing composition, with interesting shapes, colours etc. I just enjoy painting and drawing!!
