Grey Squirrel, pastel on watercolour paper

The Schminke pastels do not adhere to wc paper! They need the Rembrandts to stick to the paper.

Feeling very depressed lately, crappy weather, low level migraine, restless. Why does this squirrel look ugly to me? Just my mood. It won’t last… Just got to go through it. Doesn’t define my whole life, just a wee roadblock today.

This is actually from an online demonstration, I ail try and find the reference and add.
Simply an ink and watercolour study of fur detail. I used Pitt markers and Albrect-Durer watercolour pencil in Raw Umber.

I drew and paited this little fellow one day when I was feeling very down and depressed…I don’t know how it turned out like this but it did and it still makes me smile. Goes to show what can happen when you lose yourself in art!
Does in ink and watercolour pencils.
