Dragonfly

Larger than life watercolor of a dragonfly who has been sitting in Press and Seal for a year on my bulletin board, waiting for me to draw him. Done in the Moleskine watercolor sketchbook with pen and ink and watercolors. The wings are actually more delicate than this, but I couldn't find an ink pen fine enough. Used some irridescent medium for the sheen on the wings, but I don't think it showed up in the photo.

AWESOME!!!!! I love how you've included all the veins on the wings -- so what I see what these gentle things flutter by!

Oh, it's nice to know I'm not the only one who has dead bugs hanging around in their art room! This is really a beauty -- REALLY great!
