Up Close and Personal

For this project I drew a beetle on some tall grass. The idea was to make it up close and personal, so the bug is large and detailed. I used oil pastels as my medium and drew on black paper. I chose black paper because it brings out the contrast of the green grass and the orange bug. I chose oil pastels because I liked the bright colors and blending them together. Before the final project I thought about drawing binoculars and a person looking through them. I didn't choose this idea because is thought the bug would look cooler. But I liked the way my project turned out, especially with the emphasis on the orange beetle.
