Resident Chipmunk

Today was sunny and warm so I decided to do a 
little outdoor sketching. It didn't take long for
our resident chipmunk to pose (as long as the 
sunflower seeds and peanuts kept coming). He is 
quite a character and will let me know 
when the supply is running low!
So now to the water colors. I suppose he will want 
to get his two cents in on that.

Sharon your drawing is so good this picture really shows your talent. I'm jealous cause I have always wanted to be able to do this, I tried one time with a teacher and lets just say we had a really good time laughing :)

Wonderful drawing! I love these little characters. Watching them race around the yard makes me smile. You captured him perfectly!

LOVE this little guy! I could spend hours watching them. Last year, we had a chipmunk climb a yarrow plant to get to the seeds and he was swinging around like a circus clown. :)
Glad to hear your weather is nice. We are getting wonderful heavy monsoon rains here & the forest is so beautiful. Sunshine in the morning, rain in the afternoon, and beautiful sunsets in the evening. So pretty!!!

Have a happy one, Sharon!
Hugs,
Zuzu

Sharon...it is fabulous...so real, I can touch that nice little squirrel...and to answer your question about one of my dogs, it is a poddle but I have always been thinking she is a mix with bichon but the owner told me it is a poddle...they have something common...for sure...your dog is so cute!!!

Your sketching is wonderful. This little chipmunk actually shows his personality right through your drawing. Sunshine Summer Smiles...
