Being a study of a wasp

Today I include in this journal a painting of a dried wasp specimen. Alas, but one wing and a couple legs were lost from the specimen and therefore could not drawn, though the way the wasp dried, the legs were hardly visible anyway on account of being twisted up close to the body and therefore not viewable from the angle I chose to paint this piece from.


  1. Wow, I thought it was a real one until I read the description! You are a real artist <3!

    Good luck and keep up the good work! Bye

  2. Your words are very kind and I am inordinately pleased that the likeness is so striking that it gave you momentary pause.
