This is a watercolour of Emily the squirrel
Watercolour on 300gm Arches 190x140mm
I had to bribe her with cashew nuts to sit for me.
The squirrels have all grown quite fast and are now living in an aviary in our garden. Today Emily got out and explored in the garden then came back. It is good though there is a black sparrowhawk hunting in the area that catches doves and I am sure it would love to eat a little squirrel. Still that is the risk they face in life – at least hey have been given a start.
They are very cute little creatures.
Here they are looking for something nice to eat.
And here they stole my pencil.
They are very busy.
