Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. For the class, Painting an Allegory. Used photoshop to compose the image of a woman eating a butterfly. The class said to project the image onto the canvas, but I had to free hand it as I had no projector. Then I did an underpainting in raw umber, then several layers to reach the final product.
