Alpine Marmot

Artwork: Zebra Zensations Technical Pen & Daniel Smith watercolor on Hahnemühle Burgund Postcard. Princeton Neptune Quill Size 4 and Princeton Velvetouch Long Round size 6. Photo reference courtesy of Milchdrink on Pixabay.

Today my hubby took an Alpine Marmot in his lunch bag.

Did you know that Marmot is the correct name for the groundhog? There are several varieties and a while back a friend (and I can’t remember just who) posted some beautiful pics of the alpine marmot on Flickr (I think – my memory is less than stellar!).

I loved the coloration, running from buff to steel gray and headed off to Pixabay to find a reference photo. I don’t think I captured the texture of the coat very well, so I’ll have to try this animal again in the future.
