If you’re a fan of my work please follow me on Instagram @jbischof71 for more great and recent art work
And thank you for your support I can’t believe the response this has gotten.

its a painting.. of a mantis.. eatin stuff
in watercolor


its one of the first fine art pieces i've done where i actually stray from the original reference in terms of general structure, color, emphasizing things and making it my own. i think it turned out pretty good
