This print shows a row of purple buddleia flowers, a favorite for butterflies. Three are hovering around the flowers. If you have these wonderful plants in your garden, you will know that they can be positively surrounded by butterflies through out the time they are in bloom. The etching/aquatint is done with two plates. The first has the aqua colored shadows, the second has the drawing, printed in brown. The leaves and flowers are printed a la poupée in lavender and green. The yellow butterflies are added with chine colle. The print is very large at approximately 12 X15.5" (30 X 40 cm). The paper size is 16.5 X20" (42 X50 cm). It is printed on handmade Italian all cotton archival-quality paper.
