Recreation of a piece by Maria Sibylla Merian done originally in 1705. For the Old Masters challenge. I loved the whole circle of life thing she's got going here Her attention to detail was beyond precise, I took quite awhile with this, but I literally enjoyed every bit of it (except the tiny lines along the branches....that was tedious,and barely noticeable) even the web was fun to recreate. I guess I just fiddled a lot, I wasn't really paying attention. I don't know why time is such an issue with a lot of people, I've never professed to be some high end artist..I just draw because it feels good. I also found as much as I HATE spiders, and I really really do, I love drawing them. Go figure. So maybe you'll see more bugs from πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‹πŸ˜

Please zoom, I rarely say that because I'm so self conscious, but there's lots of little details here. I actually left a few bugs out but I feel I captured the piece well. I don't care how long it took, I picked it up and put it down over the last couple of weeks, but it got me through some rough days, so it was worth it
