Actias isabellae
« on: February 21, 2009, 09:10:18 pm »
A picture I did of Actias isabellae (Spanish moon moth) with gouache paint and a ballpoint pen.
They're found in the Pyrenees and small areas of the Alps. As a larva they feed on various types of pine trees.

Normally I would have scanned it, but the picture was too big. Hopefully I'll do some other paintings of saturniid moths in the near future!  :)
