Animal Art Series: Bugs for June

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’m working on a new weekly theme to do daily drawings, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration.

I finished some fun illustrations in June for my animal art series.

Week 21 Animal Art Series: Neon Insects

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’m working on a new weekly theme to do daily drawings, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration.

I finished my sketchbook page for week 21 in my animal art series with Neon Insects.

I wanted the initial drawings to look like a bumble bee, may fly, wasp, fly, mosquito, cockroach, boxelder, centipede, walking stick and earwig, but I didn’t want them to look so realistic that the page would be scary. So I experimented with neon gouache paint for the first time, which was fun to try. I thought the consistency was more like acrylic than gouache or watercolor paint. I don’t love acrylic but I loved the brightness results so I will definitely use these colors more in my illustration projects.
