This dragonfly closeup was a bit unsettling to paint, but once I got past its hairy face and thorny legs, I was drawn by its beautiful color variations that look gorgeously iridescent in the sunlight.



Thanks to an awesome photographer, Lawrence Splitter, for generously sharing this photo on Photos For Artists!
