Insect art

PaintingsPosted by Debbie Craddock 06 Aug, 2016 07:56
In July I attended a day at Wisley painting insects with Cath Hodsman who is a renouned artist specialising in insects.

I chose to paint a hoverfly. When it was finished I mounted it on to Lokta paper which gives it a natural background. Lokta paper is handmade in Nepal and is made from the inner bark of lokta bushes found in himalayan forests.
