Fox Squirrel Study
Fox Squirrel Study. 8 inches tall by 10inches wide. Pastel on sanded paper.
Fox Squirrels are adorable and are one of the largest squirrels found in North America. This particular fox squirrel - the slightly orange colored fox squirrel - lives in the midwest and in 2020, I had the unique pleasure of admiring these little creatures all over Iowa. One thing I noticed about fox squirrels is when they run up the tree to get out of the way, they make an effort to look down and watch you. As if you might be just as interesting to them as they are to us. Though, they probably just think we are scary - which is sad. This pastel study is of one of my many Fox Squirrel friends I made in 2020 by discovering we both like apples.
This original soft pastel drawing ships flat. Colors vary from screen to screen but the dominant colors in this piece are shades of orange and gray, with a blue gray background.
