Broad Borded Yellow Underwing Moth. by 

A watercolour of the Broad bordered Yellow Underwing Moth on Black Horehound, which is a pretty purple weed common in the UK and grows in huge clumps in hedges and on wasteland.The moth is a common and pretty species although the caterpillars,also known as cut worms can become a pest to the gardener.
I painted this using Winsor and Newton and rowney artists paints on hot pressed paper.

I still do not have a clue what drives me to paint but paint I must,all I can think is that it is a sort of magic brought about by nature.
Like most artists I have my blank times or blocks but something,a bird calling, maybe moonlight or perhaps even a single falling leaf always invokes this magic so that I start painting again for I am an artist.
