Today I started and actually finished my painting of a dragonfly. Over the last week or so I have been sketching and drawing dragonflies to get a feel for how they look. I've always loved them. They seem so unreal when you see them flying around, almost prehistoric. I think they are beautiful creatures and come in so many amazing colours. So I decided to concentrate on them for an exercise with colour, sketching and painting.
The first drawing it did used coloured pencils then finished it with a black outline.....I looked for pictures on the internet of different dragonflies and decided on this particular one.
