Grey Squirrel and color study
A Grey Squirrel, from photo referance obviously..done between the end of July and the beginning of september of last year before classes began. Probably spent about 20-30 hours total on it and there were a few screw ups in between as usual. This Faux finishing technique with acrylic allows for intense renderring but also the opportunity to distance myself away from the actual photo and become more expressive in many ways just by simply pulling out values. My next logical step is being selective of which parts to keep of the color sketch for the next renderings. Sorry for the headless and footless owl...it will be completed shortly.
