Rosey Maple Moth

Over the weekend with everyone sitting outside most of the day and evening, we saw quite a few insects we might not otherwise see.  This is one moth I had never seen before staying out on my son's property which is an open field located at the top of a mountain ridge surrounded by woods.

To capture the likeness, I used Cad Yellow Medium, Quin Rose, and Quin Gold for the moth and Hansa Yellow, Sap Green, Aliz Crimson, and Bt Umber (plus a touch of blue on my palette from another painting session) for and around the caterpillar.

#12 mini synthetic round (equiv to #5 Round) in Hand-book journal.

Also used a Sienna Faber Casell Pitt artist pen (size S) for line work.

Cute moth. BUT does it destroy Maples?
