Sunday Sketches and wings...




I have a painting that is calling for a dragonfly, and I KNOW that I can't produce it the way I see it in my head.  Minnemie did the most incredible dragonfly a few weeks ago and was kind enough to share with me how she did the wings.  I think I may have to get a plane ticket and go get lessons in person.  I am working from a photograph that artist friend,
Deb Drew Brown took.  She has this photo on her website and her work is incredible.  (not my reproduction of it ).

Anyways, this is my first practice page of the dragonfly.  This isn't the background that is going to be used but I need to just practice painting the bug before I move forward....I think this is going to take awhile!

Thanks to Alexandra for hosting our Sunday get together!!!  Please be sure to visit all the artists!

cheers, dana

If this is just your practice WIP I have a feeling you will end up with something lovely! Keep it up and looking forward to seeing what develops!

I think the wings look great! A dragonfly seems like a challenging subject, but yours is very nice.

I think you did a marvelous job! I actually like your wings very much. The bug made me smile as soon as I pulled it up - before I even read the post. You made it your own and it is a winner:-)
