Chipmunk in pen and watercolor after photo by Victor RakmilBehold for this is a chipmunk. (Or is it a squirrel? What is the difference?)
Trying to do something different once in a while. This one was quick – The green grass turned out a little unnatural. Maybe i ought to have faded it more in the background. Any thoughts?

I have a couple of watercolor sketchbooks in the mail. A4 size this time. I’m going to start doing bigger daily drawings, and then I’ll probably use these smaller ones for quicker sketches. When I’ve filled this one (as well as the next one I have aldready bought in advance.) I’ll probably convert back to “notebooks” with thin paper so as to not worry too much about “wasting” precious watercolor paper when doing something quick. I admire you guys who are able to sketch in trains and public transport! I’ve sat in the train thinking about doing it, but I just can’t get around to it.. Maybe I should try buying those expensive coffees at the cafés and start doing quick sketches there for a start..

This furry thing i found on a photo blog “Rakmil Photography”  I’ll be sending him a link to see what he think of what happened to his chipmunk.
