Squirrel In Snow – Postcards for the Lunch Bag

Sometime Monday morning (Feb. 15, 21) my review of ZenArt Black Tulip brushes will go live at Doodlewash!

#DoodlewashFebruary2021 Prompt: Squirrel.

Did you know that in the 1870’s squirrels (along with starlings and sparrows) were deliberately released into city parks seem to make them seem more like being out in nature?

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. Such a wonderful little guy….such great color-work and almost a pointillism style!
    I love these rascals…even if I run out and yell at them when they swing from the suet cage! They are such piggies. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Judy! Yeah, squirrels can wear their welcome out very quickly, lol. I used the poster art style for this, with some brush hatching and stippling. The main thing is simple shapes and hard edges throughout. Everything from paint-by-numbers to Art Nouveu and those gorgeous travel posters that started in the 40’s and are still popular today.
