Description:

Full-paint brushstrokes on dry paper created these smart red heads. Entry in the Skillshare Whimsical Watercolor Insects Challenge. © Su Schaefer 2017

These smart red-headed azalea caterpillars with their attractive stripes (& dotty poo) are safely captured in a surface design. The brief suggested to "get inspired by your favorite backyard bugs (...or at least maybe just the ones that don't totally freak you out!)" which I thought was sensitive since I really don't think I could do spiders or cockroaches. This photograph that I took & used to identify them as azalea caterpillars was my inspiration.

su_g says: Thanks so much for your nice comments Janine and Rhonda! Janine thanks for liking the repeat, I'm pretty pleased with that too (seen in a dream, & then changed the whole design in the morning!). Rhonda glad that all fell in place! I haven't looked through all the entries yet (there were 6 pages of designs!!) but so far ours were the only ones I saw that took caterpillars (plural) as a motif... hence the "great minds"!!

rhondad...

rhondadesigns says: Su, you have done an excellent job of depicting these garden creepy crawlies! Now that I have found your design I understand your comment about "Two great minds thinking alike!" Lol! Although caterpillars are definitely not my favourite creatures, they are intriguing and I love looking at them once they have metamorphosed into butterflies!:-)

su_g says: Thanks so much Narelle - glad they aren't *too* off-putting! I tell you what though, there's a definite yuck factor when looking at the chair mockups in Roostery, if you have time to check this out: https://roostery.com/p/venda-sloped-arm-chair/6452705-red-headed-azalea-caterpillars-caterpillar-poo-on-pale-olive-by-su_g-by-su_g
