Grandma wanted to remember her visit to Michigan when she came to help with the birth of the 2nd. At the time it was the beginning on winter and snow was falling. We also often had a visiting squirrel who would perch on our fence. This painting is an homage to that visit. I think it’s my favorite watercolor to date.
i have been sketching a bit with gray toned paper to help me work on lighting and shading. These are a few practice pieces from my notebook.
