Colour from the season - Calendula Orange

October's birth flower is the Calendula or Marigold. They flower all summer long and some are still flowering in full force near the end of October! A flower with both beauty and medicinal value and a radiant face against any grey skies...

Great to draw - dip pen and ink - no pencil sketch here - it either works or it doesn't.

...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
