To observe the structure and form of your beetle, referring to a beetle specimen as well as photographs and diagrams;
To use a microscope to investigate and draw smaller areas such as details on the head and legs; Watercolour techniques including washes, glazing and dry brush work for a detailed finish; and How to make the beetle look realistic – shiny, iridescent and three dimensional using light, shade and colour.
