About this book

Author Dandi Palmer shows how you just take simple shapes and build them up in clear stages little by little. This visual and practical approach will have you reaching for your drawing tools time and time again. In How to Draw Insects, you will find all kinds of wonderful insects, from the more harmless, friendly ladybirds and beautiful butterflies, to predators such as the spiny flower mantis and the wasp.

Also included in How to Draw Insects are a dragonfly, a female glow worm, the puss moth caterpillar, and many more. The two-colour line illustrations make the drawing process simple, highlighting every stage, and the final images show what to use if you choose to produce a final, full colour image. You do not have to know how to draw to use this book. Instead, the projects will build up your skills and give you the confidence to create your own drawings.

Experienced artists will find How to Draw Insects useful too. It is a great source of ideas and an inspiration for anyone wanting to draw these fascinating creatures.
