This original drawing on 320 gsm Fabriano Artistico Hotpress archival paper is 22x34".  It has been rendered in technical pen and ink and then color is applied with pastel pencils.  Once the color is roughed in, paper stumps are used to burnish the pastel into the surfaceof the paper and then carefully lifted off again using a kneaded rubber eraser, letting the underdrawing of the ink marks show through again. The image is of three different species of Junonia, the Buckeyes, that are from my collection of insects.  I draw directly from the insects and try to match the colors and textures with the chosen materials.
