Re: Microcosmos

DITTO what everyone else wrote....plus...

I just adore how you have used the same colours throughout this piece, it really moves my eye around. Thats why the background works as is -I think I am right in thinking that you have used the same blues that feature in the feelers of the bug?

It is very beautifully done (I never thought I would use the word 'beautiful' in conjunction with a creepy crawly ).

Re: Microcosmos

Thanks a lot to all of you for looking and commenting.I'm pleased that you like the bg as it is.

Ali : I agree with your remark about the colors in the piece : that's what attracted my eyes first when I saw the photo.All these greens and reds and yellow and blue) were so beautiful, I felt the urge to take my pencils.
Now, I did not use the same blues for the bg and the feelers (I used phtalo blue for the feelers and light ultramarine for the bg +other colors as well)but
it must be difficult to see on a monitor. And....he is not a "creepy crawly", he is a "marvellous god's creature"

Re: Microcosmos

I stand corrected Thank you for putting me straight .
Although to be honest I am commenting from the position of Arachniphobe -so even though I have nothing against this little guy -I still find it hard to accept some of 'gods creatures' BUT I do keep trying .

Re: Microcosmos

Gorgeous! I like the bg the way it is. The bug is just as beautiful as the roses.

Re: Microcosmos

very well done - do like how the bug pops out as it does, despite how colorful the vegetation is...

Re: Microcosmos

Mado, it's simply gorgeous! The rosebuds and the beetle have vibrant and really beautiful colors ! As for the background, I find it very good as it is.
