Panther and Squirrel in pen and watercolor

Panther and Squirrel
7" square pen and watercolor

This weekend the host for the Weekend Drawing Event is skappy, Robert Rongier. He's French and has access to a wonderful big cats sanctuary where he gets some of the most amazing photos. He's posted Parisian scenes, a hawk, a white lion cub and this panther and the squirrel. I combined them because of the panther's expression. He was opening his mouth as if to say something and looking up, the squirrel looked cheeky, thought it was perfect.

So the subtitle is "Throw one more nut and I'm getting up."

Had fun with an illustration style using the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and still more interesting line effects with it. Then finished with Daniel Smith watercolors on my Stillman & Birn Delta journal. I'm really getting used to the pen now and love how this works!
