Introduction: LUCKY LADYBUG
Take something tiny like a ladybug ... or two ... and draw them large. This painting measures 2' x 4'.
Step 1: AN IDEA OF SCALE OF PAINTING
Here is the painting hanging on a wall with other things near it to give you and idea of just how large it is.
Step 2: FIND IMAGES TO COPY
Here are images of a ladybug and water droplets. The only two elements of this painting.
Step 3: DRAW THE LADYBUG
You can break down the basic shape of the ladybug into easy to draw elements.
Step 4: WATER DROPLETS
Determine your light source. Draw a circle. Shade the edge closest to the light source a little darker fading out toward the center of the droplet.
Step 5: ASSEMBLE THE ELEMENTS
There are not too many different elements to this painting. There is the branch the ladybugs are crawling on, the ladybugs, water droplets and dark and light sources. That's it.
Step 6: NOW HAVE FUN
As usual, all comments appreciated and all questions answered.
