Bear and Bug

I drew the original pencil sketch for this watercolour October last during my recent exhibition. I was havin' a busy and stressful day, so escaped for a half an hour and went for a walk down the canal in Galway. It was a beautifully sunny day as I remember, so I sat for a while just listening to the water flowing. This little green insect crawled onto my hand and just sat for a while. He was minuscule. So so tiny in comparison to my awkward bulk. When he left I took out a piece of paper and drew this quickly. I came across the drawing the last day and watercoloured it up!
