Video tutorial PLUS full colour step-by-step downloadable pdf lesson for you to print off and follow as you paint. Includes list of materials, easy instructions and extra tips. How cute is this male Maratus flavus (peacock spider)! In real life his abdomen really shines and he’s quite a speedy little fellow. “Colonel Mustard” is the non-scientific name for this little guy, but “Maratus flavus” is the scientific name. I am especially grateful to my friend Dr Mathew Hourston for the reference photo and for helping me with the video that accompanies this lesson.
