You know it's Autumn when you see the Banded Woolly Bear caterpillars (aka Bugbears) crawling around.  These adorable little fellows transform into the not so adorable Tiger Moth.  They're rather amazing - they actually produce a natural form of anti-freeze in order to survive the winter.

I wish they wouldn't choose my doorstep to congregate though.  I have to look every time I go out now, for fear of stepping on one.

October is Inktober month.  I'm going to post as many ink drawings as I can.  Zebra pen is joining the activity with weekly giveaways - see the details below the line & wash painting.

Drawn with Zebra Zensations Technical Pens, and painted with Qor Mars Orange Deep, French Cerulean Blue, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, and Dioxine Purple in a Hahnemühle A5 Watercolorbook using a Winsor & Newton Series 7 round size 4.

At the end of each week, Zebra pens will select a winner to receive their new Zensations line of products, including tools and utensils specifically made for artists like you!  (sorry, North America residents only)
The rules are simple:
  1. Create a drawing
  2. Post it on your social media accounts
  3. Hashtag it with #inktober and #zensations
  4. Repeat this each day through the month of October.

Fun & Easy Landscapes step-outs, step-wiselys or step-by-steps are posted every Friday!
