"Invisible Qualities" presents a realistic depiction of a butterfly with yellow and black patterned wings, alongside slender green grass blades contained within an off-white rectangle. The butterfly is posed mid-flight, with its wings spread open, showcasing the beautiful patterns. The rectangle with the butterfly and grass is centered against a textured background and is a soft, neutral color palette with white predominant. The outer edges of the rectangle featuring the butterfly give a sense of depth and framing the central image. The overall aesthetic gives the feeling of a mixed media piece where different materials and painting techniques could have been used to create the visual effects displayed.
