Tiger Moth Teacup by RedgoldsparksPress Tiger Moth Teacup by RedgoldsparksPress
This piece was done as a commission for someone I know on livejournal. Her request was a delicate green teacup with a fern pattern and a tiger moth perched on the rim. This is the result, which she plans to get as a tattoo!

If you want to see some sketches which I did while working in this commission, I made a post on livejournal about it here: [link]

9x6 inches, ink and watercolor.

Not yet, it's a bit more expensive than I thought! Hopefully this year if I have money left-over from my student loan. :)
