Acrylic and Pastel

I tried an experiment using acrylic paint and pastel pencils on canvas paper to do this morning's sketch...the little guy is supposed to be eating a nut, but I think he looks like he's praying to the big tree for nuts to fall down to him ha, ha, ha, ha!

Just like the ones in my back yard! They do kind of look like they are praying :) I feed them so I usually have 5 or 6 of them running around back there. And if I don't have food out they sit on the fenceposts and give me the eye! :)

I have often seen squirrels sit like this.  He is so cute.  I think his eye is very realistic and I like his fur.

I can see the start of a story book here Wanda, great little character,  his eye and fur are very good.
