Moth Pupa Oil Painting (step by step progression) Painting-SOLD 100% proceeds to benefit ARK (Area Rehabbers Klub) Wildlife Rehabilitation in Virginia

The Catalpa Sphinx Moth Pupa
that inspired this small painting..... shown cradled by a paper towel so as to not roll off the palette while I'm painting! I would have appreciated that it had stayed still though ;0)
(don't forget to click on images to enlarge)

After final color adjustments, detail & glazing applications, highlights, varnishing......
Detailed commentary about this painting's progression can be found in my Nature Art blog: It was painted last year and I thought it might be nice to have the step-by-step included in this blog..... so here it is.
This work was painted from real life subjects (right down to the smallest gravel and moss) that I gathered from my property..... each rested on my easel as I painted.
Now go and compose your own "little gem" oil painting ;0) Enjoy!
