This little ladybug was an absolute sweetheart posing for me today…

She was very shy, but in the end, she gave me this little pose, which I thought just perfect for her debut on redbubble. I hope you like her, this is my first attempt at selective colouring.

    I have never seen a black and white one before great find Karin and shot . x

  • thank you so much Irene, this was actually an experiment in selective colouring, where usually the subject is the one kept coloured and the background made black and white, but I like to do things back-to-front sometimes lol ;) x

  • thanks so much Rosalie, an experiment in selective colouring, I did the opposite of what most people do, and made the ladybug black and white :) x
