Here an overview of the development of it. The first two pictures are when I was still working on all three of the paintings.
|Just the outlines in pencil.|
|Some black for the eye and back added.|
|Adding a background first, but leaving the tree stump and squirrel free of paint.|
Since then I have done more to this painting. But slowly, with enough time for the color to dry between layers.
|The basic color for the tree stump.|
|Some more details on the tree stump - with shadows.|
|Adding the basic color for the squirrel - the eye was moved a bit more the the snout too.|
Long way to go - and still having fun!!
