Red Squirrel in Mixed Media

I was really happy to get to work this Red Squirrel, a tutorial by Tamara Laporte.

I used Jane Davenport watercolors on Canson 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper, to paint this cutie. I used Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White to make the tummy white again and added a bit of Liquitex Acrylic Ink to the tail. A couple of pens and markers brought out the details.

Aside from a transmission problem with the video it was fun and I'm pleased with the finished piece.
