This is a close up of a painting that I have been commissioned to do. There are two more paintings to come as part of this series so stay tuned to see some more squirrel action. One of my favourite parts of the painting was definitely the tail. I kept it painterly and a little abstract by literally blowing the paint droplets around the page to create the furry edges.
What do you think? If you have any hints or tips on painting fur, leave a comment, I’d love to hear about it!
