Scribble Picnic: ladybug


 she always wore a green dress
hoping the leaf color
would beckon ladybugs to her


 Remembering a ladybug that I saw last year......
I thought to try painting it from the photo


Ladybug

Thank you for hosting Michael!

  1. Liebe Tammy
    dein Mairenkäfer auf dem Blatt hast du wunderschön gemalt und dein Mädchen so verlockend für die Marienkäfer sehr schön dargestellt!
    Schönen Tag

  2. I like her hair and the ladybugs all over her. would ladybugs really come to her and land onto her green dress? it's possible.

    good painting of the ladybug. from the photo, it's very odd, but I see a dog/puppy face in the photo with the two dots and the large black shape below. & it's in your painting too. I guess it's just me

    have a lovely day.

      I see the dog face now too.

  3. Love your stories, and your illustrations are so sweet... That long pink hair, and long green dress are such a fashion statement with those little lady bugs.

    1. Fun to think of them bringing good luck. I hardly ever see them here. I do get happy when I see one.

  6. Haha, I think all ladybird patterns look like dog faces, come to think of it. As it is, this is a fabulous rendition on the 2nd one and love your expression on the first too. now, those are huge bugs on that dress so are those patterns within the fabric or the bugs big or the girl small? Anyway, I love it. Thank you so much, Tammie.

    1. Thanks for inspiring a chuckle Michael. Those would be huge ladybugs, but so would your ladybird buttons be huge! ;-)
      Whimsy has no rules, at least that is how I see it.

    1. Thank you Jennifer. Red hair really is a beautiful thing. My mom had red hair, now it is a soft strawberry blonde/white.

    1. Thank you Mary. It was fun to find the ladybug and watch it settle into that leaf.
      Fun that you get to have red hair too!

  12. Aren't we lucky that ladybugs are not only cute but friendly. I love the illustration from your photo. Especially the white details on the leaf edge. Wonderfully done!

  13. Wow! Such a beautiful illustration of the lovely lady in green. The bug and the green leaf are so well done too, in fact I loved the hand drawn version more than the clicked one.

    So glad to have stumbled on your creative space from Red rose alley, now following! :)

  14. So interesting to see the white markings on your ladybug, which I never really noticed before. Sure enough, looking at images via Google they are apparent on ladybug photos, but seem to be left off of most drawings. Now I wish I had put some on mine!
