... For Frank ....

The late Frank Hovore, friend and colleague, collecting Titanus giganteus in Ecuador and for whom I posthumously named a new species of Rain Beetle ~Pleocoma hovorei La Rue, 2007.

~ Watercolor Beetles ~

Here is an update of my progress on the beetle composition that I have posted elements of. I feel, for the most part, it is nearing completion but still lacks a few more beetles and other details. You may notice that the red longhorn beetle (Rosalia formosa) lacks the right antenna. I have temporarily omitted it until the remaining beetles are in place.

As a reminder, this is done in an A3 (16.5 X 12-inch, 297 X 420mm) watercolor Moleskine Folio using W&N Cotman WCs and Faber-Castell Polychromos CPs.
