First one for a while....Ladybird-Ladybug.....

This is my first attempt for a while (I have to keep doing "real life") Saw the picture and had to paint it, it's A4 and before it's mentioned, it's not a giant bug the flowers must be tiny because they are that size in the photo.....just so you don't think I've gone bonkers!
Struggled with the flowers (don't do flowers) and felt a bit rusty doing this but I've primed up some boards to get fired back into it again....
C&C's welcomed but be gentle with me 'cos I'm only little..........


Thank you for taking the time to look.........

Looks to me like you do do flowers - and you do them very well! Lovely depth & shine to the bug. A most appealing image!

Love this. I like the bug larger as this is how they look many times on flowers but are seldom painted this way for some reason.

I like it very much! The big shiny bug is great. And in my opinion - you do the flowers very well, too. Iadmire all your paintings.

Missed you!

Love this ladybird - not often they get to be the centre of attraction!

Nothing at all wrong with your flowers either - so paint more!
