Old Bugs - Laura Gillis

When I was recently cleaning up my drawing table I found these bugs I had drawn... I can't remember how old they are but I still liked them. The Yellow Jacket and the butterfly are ink & watercolor, the mud dauber wasp is just ink. All were done on Arches 140# hot press watercolor paper that I had soaked in tea and dried for the color.


  1. These are stunning Laura - and I like the idea of soaking the paper in tea - have never done that, only old linen napkins to give them a vintage look... great work.

  2. I like them too, a LOT, glad you shared them with us.
