Nature Fine Art Painting, Original Watercolor Painting, Wildlife,”Vintage Stag Beetle” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe

This Stag Beetle made a great subject for this experiment of aging the watercolor paper. The paper was hand torn/deckled and then the beetle was done on top. This is a male beetle. You can tell by the size of the large Mandibles. The male uses the large mandibles to "duel" with other males. The mandibles act as a sword and will fling their opponent off of a log and declare to be the winner!
