I have a great love of dragonflies. I have no idea what fascinates me about them but when I draw insects it is always the first one I draw. I think they are very pretty insects and their colours on their body's are just beautiful. Today I have drawn a dragonfly based on Elizabethan embroidery designs from furnishings from that era.
The dragonfly was drawn with prisma coloured pencils. (a beautiful pencil with a high pigment content) I thought I would try this one with no other painted colour. I then went over the pencil with stitching.
I really liked the strong contrast between the white and the coloured stitching.
