My 100 Day Project is done and dusted. Here are bugs 81 to 100 for your enjoyment.
In this set of 20, the beetles won by a landslide. I painted 13 of them. I do enjoy the beetles though – there is just something about all of the shapes and sizes and colors that I don’t seem to get tired of. They also don’t creep me out the way a lot of other bugs seem to.
The remaining 7 bugs are a mixed bag for sure. Three butterflies, a cicada, a moth, a lantern bug, and a grasshopper. I only painted a couple of lantern bugs during this project but I want to do more. They are incredibly colorful.
Once again I can not even being to pick a favorite from this bunch. Instead I’m going to bring you four shiny beetles. Why? Because I’m actually pretty proud of my ability to now paint a convincing shine in watercolor. It was one of the many things I was clueless about before starting this project.
Stay tuned for a wrap-up article coming later this week. And thank you everyone for following along and giving me so much encouragement. It’s been a super fun ride hasn’t it?
