Fall Leaves & Praying Mantis - Laura Gillis

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.... there is so much to be thankful for.

One thing I am thankful for is that I got a surprise day off so I had a little extra time this weekend. So, I got back to nature and did the praying mantis (one of my favorite insects) and some fall leaves.

Fall leaves from the park... a sweet gum and a burr oak. Ink & watercolor on Hemp paper in the nature journal.

A praying mantis for the Bug Book... ink & watercolor in the Moleskine watercolor journal


  1. You are so talented! Love the sketch of the leaves, lovely!

  2. Two lovely sketches Laura! Just LOVE those little feet!

  3. How alive these look against the toned paper!
