Black Swallowtail on Red Hibiscus by Alina Oseeva.
Beautiful black Swallowtail butterfly on the gorgeous open red Hibiscus flower.
Chinese style painting on silk.
Butterfly is the power of air, the ability to float upon a breeze. It is known for its darting flight; thus, it represents the mind and our ability to change it when necessary. Butterfly represents the never-ending cycle of life; therefore, its medicine bestows not only the ability, but the clarity of mind needed before self-transformation.
Paintings on silk are made with water-based paints, such as watercolor, tempera or acrylic. The style is light and airy, with a lot of traced small details, which is achieved with the help of a "dry" brush in combination with a blurred background which is technically depicted in the first place, then following the detailing.
The theme and source of inspiration is nature and all living things that surround us. And the meaning of my work is to pay attention to the beauty and fragility of the world.
