Owl Butterflies is a truely unique and beautiful painting by artist Amy Letts. Using acrylic painting and collage techniques this is a relief painting with 3D elements. It is also very tactile. Only seeing the original can give you its full impact.

The Owl Butterfly, also called ‘Caligo memnon’, ‘pale owl’ or ‘giant owl’, is native to South America. It gets its name from its colouring and giant eye spots, which make it resemble an Owl. This species of butterfly is crepuscular aka active at dusk and dawn.

This painting uses tin foil and corrugated cardboard for the wing texture, with dried grasses forming the veins, legs and antenna. Other 3D elements are achieved with thick, impasto painting.
