Original Watercolour Insect Illustration – 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!
The size of the paper is approx. 29.5 cm x 21.0 cm (11.6″ x 8.3″)
The size of the painting is approx. 14.8 cm x 14.5 cm (5.8″ x 5.7″)

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.
The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing. Likewise, I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me. I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.
A bit about me!
I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail. I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.
