Fine art illustration of a Cardinal Meadowhawk Dragonfly (Sympetrum illotum.) The illustration is available in black and white or color for immediate download.
This is the first dragonfly I had drawn. It was based on a photo I took in Dry Creek regional park near Fremont, CA. I love the dynamic position of the dragonfly (in many photos I’ve taken they look very static and stationary) which seems about to jump off the plant at any second. The original line art drawing was done in 2003 and color was added in 2008. I love the name of this dragonfly – the ‘Meadowhawk.’
