Winter Squirrel

IMG_0632So I have spent most of today getting this piece finished in time to submit it to the Strathmore Wonders of Winter competition with Jackson’s Art Supplies.

I was nervous about the background – how could I show thick snowfall without taking away from the squirrel itself? Pastels, I thought. Which I am terribly inexperienced with. Ah well.

IMG_0633I just had to go for it and I didn’t have time to mess about or make a mistake.

I mentioned that I liked this paper – it is very like Mi-Tientes pastel paper, slightly less robust, but still a very workable and pleasing support.

And I finished in the nick of time.

Fingers crossed!
