Inktober day 26 – stretch

Today I was thinking about this prompt and decided it could be fun to try to draw the squirrel who visits our garden, climbs up the bird feeder pole and stretches across to get food from the feeders. But then as I was sitting in our living on the first floor, he suddenly appeared on the windowsill next to me. He had a precarious climb up the railings, though I’m not sure what he was trying to achieve with this, and then climbed back down again! I managed to snap a couple of pictures of him on my phone without scaring him.

Sure enough he then joined his mate at the bird feeder and some more serious stretching occurred, but seeing as I couldn’t get any good photos of this I decided to draw him on the railings. Here he is

    1. Thank you. I’m pleased with how he turned out given that with stretching he’s a bit of a funny shape! I’m learning that adding finer lines after thicker ones can add detail and texture without making things too heavy
