Musical Insects: #III, The Organ Tamamushi Beetle, Pencil on paper, 2018 (+timelapse video)
Hey, here is my last drawing, a new piece for my Musical Insects series:
The Organ Tamamushi Beetle
Pencil on paper, 26 x 18 cm (10" x 7"), 2018
The Tamamushi Beetle (chrysochroa fulgidissima, or "jewel beetle") is a native beetle to Japan and Korea, and is known for its iridescent wings that glow with different colors depending upon the light angle.
I made a video of the process (3 hours in a 3 mins video):
(Music: Fia - Corpo Mente)
I used a propelling pencil, a while pencil, two erasers, and a small sprayer filled with watercolor (for the background, with yellow + magenta + sepia) :
My Musical Insects series is growing bit a bit, you can see the whole collection (3 for now):
The next goal will be to frame this collection, maybe in a "under two glasses" metal frame, to be continued...
And stay tuned, the next ones will follow soon ;)
