This pastel painting of a red squirrel shows one of my favourite animals, although I have still not come across one while out walking. I hope to put that right in due course as there's nothing better than seeing the real thing to inspire your artwork. This was one of the later development pieces I did from a more advanced Colin Bradley kit, which used 15 pastel pencils. It was also one I came back to several years later when I was trying to get back into doing art again after an enforced break due to work and other commitments. This is the first attempt and you can find the Reworked version HERE.
