Scarlet Lily Beetle


Scarlet Lily Beetles – the bane of many a gardener’s life!  The beetle and the grubs will dine mainly on lilies and fritillaries.  They spoil the look of the plant but will also often result in undersized bulbs which may even fail to flower the following year.  That said, they are a stunning subject to paint!

An original watercolour painting of a Scarlet Lily Beetle

The size of the painting is approx 148mm x 145mm (5.8″ x 5.7″), however it is worked on paper which is approx 295mm x 210mm (11.6″ x 8.3″).

The beetle has been painted on an excellent quality watercolour paper using the finest of brushes for the tiny detail produced. 

To ensure the painting arrives safely it will be wrapped in cellophane and carefully packaged flat using thick board.  It will be posted ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’.
