Outdoor Studio Visit with Landscape Painter David Yapp

My interest in observing nature developed during my teens. A family friend who was studying zoology shared with me his fascination of entomology (the study of insects). We searched the water meadows, for exotic-looking beetles and metallic clad dragonflies. At night we set up a light trap to see what nocturnal winged beings we could discover. I started to paint some of these finds in watercolor, along with the flora they inhabited.
