Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillar painting, the succesful post

Ok, so the first time I attempted to post this, It didn’t work. But now I’ve made sure that wont happen again. Long story short, this is a painting (as the title suggests) of the Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillar. Basically the most interesting caterpillar in the world.

Well, I had more to say about the painting in my original version, aber ich wissen das ich could say it a bit simpler. Personally, looking back, I think I included too many criticisms. Not that its perfect, but considering das es was one of meine first canvas paintings, I think it’s pretty good. Now the caterpillar itself has been one of my interests since I found it in a handbook, when I was randomly selecting one to study. The painting is, as I said earlier, was one of my first paintings on a canvas. Early enough in the process of becoming a painter, I didn’t even have regular acrylics. I used craft acrylics. Still, now that Ich habe diese good kind of acrylics, none of the colors would have worked as well. However, I may not have had as much trouble with the shading. I’ve noticed that with the thicker texture, it’s easier to blend, aber nicht make it one shade alone. But, I didn’t have them and I had to remove some of its horns, from the painting. Well, I had to cut some of them partly because everyone thought they were legs. Maybe now that I’ve improved, I’ll add them in again.
OK, I’ve actually added more than I originally had, and I have to go somewhere with my family, so I’ll wrap it up. Ich bin just glad that I have the opportunity share this with all of you, as well as the many other painting posts I’ll be making over time.
