color pencil study of a dragonfly

I want to somehow combine some pattern of damask onto a color pencil drawing like this dragonfly I did last night. There is an artist on YouTube I follow and she uses damask on a lot of her drawings and I love the look! So I ordered a stencil last night and will patiently (not really) wait for my amazon order... in the meantime, I did this small damask from a brass stencil i have, to practice. 

Art for me is a journey. Ask any artist what is their favorite piece and most likely it will be the latest finished painting or drawing. I don't tend to repeat my work. I may do another chickadee bird but it will be a different season, different tree or a different medium. I usually change something . I think it's to keep things fresh. In my head anyway. :)
