Impressionist Oil Painting Monarch Butterflies and Chamomile Flowers

Inspired by Monet Monarch Butterflies

I have always been Inspired by Monet and Vincent van Gogh. Check out the close up images of this painting.

I prepared the canvas with a mixture of marble dust and gesso that I move around to created a stucco like texture. After that is totally dry I painted in oil.

Here are two videos. I did not tape everything I just don't have the time to do that. But it gives you a good idea of my oil painting style. I like the impressionist approach, but I do have my own unique style. I'm not trying to totally emulate that wonderful impressionist era but rather be inspired by it.

I had painted a large acrylic a while back just with that motive. Bunches of butterflies and a field of chamomile and assorted flowers. The painting is very popular as print.

I decided to paint it also in oil.

The painting is finished now. you can buy it from my website ginettecallaway.com
