La farfalla dell'estate! xD
Fantastica Camilla! Come usi i colori e gli acrilici o la tempera tu, non li usa nessuno brava!^^

Sorry guys, I want to speak italian for a one time! xD

I cannot stop looking at this painting, I swear. There's something about it. Maybe it's the minimalism of the layout, which is really focused. Maybe it's the delicacy in everything from the submerged lips, to the little butterfly feet, to those pink wings. I know, also, that the pastels -- the soft colours at the core of this painting -- really appeal to me. I have other Camilla limited prints, and there's something about the melted salt taffy feel she's been doing lately that impresses me. Why? Well, try to imagine making these long, thin, clean lines on an un-gessoed wood panel. I know oil is slippery, sort of like painting with butter or mayonnaise, but it is really hard to get that liquid feel. It's hard to pull a uniform colour out over a long distance, which is what she's doing in those lines. So don't be fooled because she makes it look so easy. The painting looks like melted ice-cream to me. Sweets and treats in are right up my alley! Also, really, you have to appreciate the solid command of colours in this one. Just knowing where to put the pale pinks versus that one black line. For me, this painting pulls together a lot of what I've always liked about d'Errico's work to begin with. Anyway love it. :) Would love to own it. <sobs>

Interesting idea. I wouldn't have associated butterflies with watermelon, but it works!
