Sketch and New Painting Start

Last night while I was watching TV, I did some sketching. Found a photo of one of our dear little red squirrels and it became my subject.

Today, I did a quick layout for a painting I have running around in my mind. I’ll try and keep posting on these things so it follows the progress of it. The base is done in acrylic and I will follow it with oil. Very rough at this point and it can go in a number of different directions.
