Billy Brett, a friend of my daughter’s, took this amazing photo after handing a piece of bread to a squirrel, and I could not resist it. Tell me, can you? So much furry goodness in one photograph!
It proved to be a lot harder than I thought to draw, though. I’ve probably tried it about 5-10 times. I was starting to think I was only capable of producing The Squirrel from Mars, and so I’ll spare you all of the preliminary drawings and sketches.
I still see shades of the alien squirrel, lol, and lots of ways to improve it, but as hub would say, it may be beyond my pay grade at this point. Might be fun to try it this time next year and see. But it was so freaking cute, and Billy took such a great improv shot, that I had to post it. I hope you enjoy it. This time, I used a Strathmore art journal, 8 x 5.5″, and a nougat Polychromos (what a great name for a color). This took about 2 hours (but since I’m still living in Virus-ville, it was all good).
I haven’t decided for sure what to draw for the letter T. Might be back to the birdies for that one, or might try an inanimate (gasp) object. I went to sleep last night with T words dancing in my head.
Go make something. It’s amazing what happens when you do something every day. Or even every week! We are art energy, and we are rolling!
