Squirrel!

Starting a new painting based on one of the hour  challenge sketches from last week. This is Crash looking at squirrels in the tree when she was a year old – long time ago.

Using a small wood panel and painting knife, maybe a little brushwork to finish. Not sure if I can get the right level of detail with the knife but I'll give it a go.

Pic below is first 30 minutes of block in using a burnt sienna wash, using both brush and paper towel. Wanted to make sure I got the values and proportions right. Having sketched this a few times in the past I know how easy it is to get the face dimensions out of whack.
