3D Paper Artworks ‘Find Your Wings & Fly Away – Aqua Dreams’ by Amanda Deadman

Amanda Deadman creates stunning and ethereal 3D paper artworks such as this ‘Aqua Dreams’ piece. This is number 12 in her ‘Find Your Wings and Fly Away’ series. Three sizes of butterflies are drawn and painted. All the left-hand wings are painted turquoise.
and all the right-hand wings in aqua and gold metallic watercolour.

The left-hand wings of the top third of the butterflies are darkened with flecks of Payne’s Grey and dots of black watercolour, whilst the lower third are dotted white acrylic. The butterflies are arranged decoratively in a graduating square.

The result is a vibrant aqua/turquoise modern relief design revealing individual butterflies on closer inspection. Different shadows are cast, and light is reflected from the metallic paint on the up-turned wings depending on the direction of the light.

N.B. The image shown is an example of the series. Amanda makes each individual piece by hand, therefore every one is unique and will vary slightly from the one shown.

The painting is framed in a white glazed (Perspex) deep box frame.
