Bug Art Print
I love drawing from the natural world and this drawing is the 5th in the series which began with Ark, and then went on to Ocean, Reef and Animal.
I have always loved insects and bugs since I was a kid, wondering how ants communicated and how ladybirds stored their wings!. This drawing was a challenge as I wanted it to look like while I was drawing it some bugs just came and sat on the drawing. Realism is not really my thing, so I practiced drawing the ladybirds, butterfly and wasp several times before taking the plunge on the original artwork. I used watercolour pencils, then a little ink here and there for some vibrancy on the ladybirds and the wasp.
I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I did drawing it.
Paper size is 12x10 inches, drawing fits just inside A4 dimensions, this drawing took me 35 hours to draw and paint!
