I admit, I was missing some color in the Val Webb online course using graphite and carbon pencil. So I just had to add some color to his leaf :)
The goal for this drawing was to make the little beetle look shiny.
I am having some issues with my neck and shoulders so taking more breaks and moving through things slower. And haven't really worked on the gouache any so need to get back to that! And then I hear there's a holiday season coming!!!
