I created the Beetle from torn-up fragments of watercolour leaf prints, enhanced with metallic ink and some little gems. The design is sealed with a water-based transparent glue, which keeps everything in place and adds a pleasing textured effect to the background.
This unique artwork is on black card behind glass in a custom-made pewter-effect frame, signed on the front and labelled on the back. The back is finished with D-rings, cord and protective felt bumpers so it’s ready to hang on the wall.
Delivery within the UK is included in the price. I will send it carefully packaged, by 2nd class Royal Mail, within 3 days of receiving payment.
This stylised Beetle would make an ideal gift for an entomologist – or just someone who loves creepy-crawlies!
