Metamorphosis: Swallowtails is a series of digital portraits depicting Swallowtail butterflies. Through meticulous digital hand painting, Dominic Harris recreates these beautiful creatures within his digital canvases. Code enables Harris in bringing his digital creations come to life, fluttering and shimmering to reveal the complex layering of colour and shade from which their wings are created. These works display immense fidelity to the subject and express the artist’s revelry in the beauty of the natural world.
