Work in progress


 This has been sitting around the studio for a long time now, and was getting knocked around and marked by other paintings, so I bit the bullet and put it on the easel on Saturday and it’s nearly done, maybe an hour or so more to do.


This is the previous post of this painting.

Emporer Dragonfly


Coloured pencil on cartridge paper.

This dragonfly was thought not to exist in Ireland until quite recently but due to birdwatchers taking more interest in other flying creatures has proved to be reasonably common.

The hardest part of this painting was trying to decide how to tackle the wings, think I made a reasonable effort.
