Squirrel Update, and New Work in Progress

I worked a bit more on the squirrel last weekend, but since the engagement, I can't seem to keep focused on anything but wedding plans. lol. It's not even for another year, no date set yet, but it's all I can think about anymore. lol. So I kept forgetting to post this poor little guy. But he's here now. He's coming along....very very slowly. It's tedious work, but so far I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out. I think I may take out some of the sky....make it so that less sky shows through the leaves. He has to be finished by the end of the month. I hope I can make the deadline!

I had some time tonight while my fiance went to play cards with his friends, so I thought I'd start a new project. (I don't like to work on things without daylight, so it's only a start). This is for the Monthly Portrait Challenge on Wetcanvas. It's an Old Master Study...."Biondina" by Lord Frederick Leighton. A photo of the original painting can be seen here. My study is on 9x12 Burgandy Colourfix paper, which I will cut down to 8x10 to fit in my portfolio book once it's complete. I will try to finish it this weekend. So stay tuned.... :)
