This luna moth is resting on an old dead tree with a fence insulator and rusty wire. I did this with colored pencil done on Dura-Lar. I still need to work on the moth, it needs to be softened and lightened a bit. This drawing is about a 6 1/2 x 6 1/2.
I am so excited about finding this Dura-Lar.... thanks to my friend Lesley (thank you, thank you, thank you).
I know I should finish one before starting another one, but I am having so much fun with working on this new paper that I started another one. Now I have 2 drawings that are "almost done".
This is my Red Bellied Woodpecker that is also a colored pencil on Dura-Lar. This one is an 8 x 10. Another friend of mine took this photo of woodpecker and let me use her image. Thank you Marilyn for doing so. We trade images as it works out for both of us.
This drawing is not done either. I still need ot work on the feathers, his belly needs softened and lightened a bit. The fungi also needs some touching up too.
If you like to work in colored pencil or graphite, the Dura-Lar is a great paper to work on. It is actually a film but works wonderful with pencils.
Now I must dicipline myself and finish both of these before I start another one.
