In Progress

Stag beetle sketch by Amy Guidry; 5″ x 5″; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

Sneak peek at a little piece in progress for an upcoming exhibition.  This is the initial sketch before I take it to canvas.  Full size is 5″ wide by 5″ high.

This is actually only the second time I’ve ever worked on a stag beetle.  The first was in my painting Symbiotic.  See if you can spot him.

New “New Realm” Painting

"Butterflies" by Amy Guidry; SOLD; From the New Realm series. Copyright Amy Guidry 2009

After a short break, I did end up painting another 4″ x 4″ panel piece from my New Realm series.  This one is “Butterflies” and features the red and black butterflies seen throughout the series.  I kept the composition rather simple given the small size of the panel.  These panels are great.  I found them one day while getting art supplies.  They’re so darn cute and very smooth.  Works wonders when doing tiny detail work (which is rather often for me…) so I do like working with them.  I do like canvas, too, though, so I won’t ever give that up.
