If you haven't had a chance to read my previous luna moth post, let me start by saying, this whole series was inspired because I couldn't find just the right piece of artwork to hang in my living room, so I just decided to make my own! This green june bug drawing is the second in my three piece series inspired by, obviously, green bugs!
The first was a delicate luna moth, so to contrast it with a similar color scheme but using a bolder palette, I choose the green june bug with its hard, metallic back. I again used colored pencils, but didn't add a layer of chalk dusting in order to maintain the shiny effect the pencil coating leaves.
I hope you enjoy this latest drawing! I've already started the third and final piece, which I'll be posting soon! Now all I have to do is find three pretty frames, I was thinking of a more simple designs, so I can finally hang them in my living room and see them all the time!
