Watercolors on Bristol, matted with origami paper (aizome chiyogami).
It's too bad this insect is an agricultural pest, I think they're beautiful! The colors I used are a slight exaggeration of a bluish-green one in my bug collection. A light reddish color is more common.
It is also a shame I was afraid to ruin the origami paper by cutting out the rest of the leg so that it would show. They have such adorable feet:
Side bar: This makes up for yesterday's toilet humor ;)
