Red Admiral Butterfly Print

This is a print of graphite on paper.

NZ does not have many butterflies, plenty of moths, but few butterflies. Which makes the NZ Red Admiral butterfly even more special. These critters breed on ongaonga - NZ's native stinging nettle - and with so many people controlling the environment to make it more suitable for human habitation, many of the ongaonga are removed, and hence, we have less red admiral butterflies. I love seeing these bright beauties flitter about my home and garden so I leave an area of ongaonga for them to reproduce on.

My work is achieved by adding layers of graphite to build up from a base of mid-tone graphite to the darks and lights that create the texture and shading.

This print is A4 (21 cm x 29.5 cm). .

All my prints are professionally produced and they are posted in purpose made card boxes to ensure they arrive on your doorstep in the best possible condition.

I hope you enjoy this print as much as I enjoyed creating it.
The price includes standard NZ postage.
