I couldn't resist painting this little fellow - he is just so cute. I am really pleased how he turned out - it all just seemed to come together.. I used the same colour combination as I did for the tigers fur - I just added a bit of burnt umber so vary the colour here and there.
Red Squirrel measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Lissa Perkins for the reference photo.
