"Boulder Copper"

(New Zealand Native Butterfly)


SCRATCHBOARD & METALLIC INKS, 5x5in

A scratchboard & inkpainting of a male Boulder Copper, a native New Zealand butterfly.
This was a photograph I took in the Ure Valley, Marlbrough. The Boulder Copper is very similar to the Common Copper but perhaps not so commonly seen, found in tussocky country and braided rivers.

Open Edition Giclee Prints soon available at Image Vault Prints
