Squirrel in Tulip Garden Watercolor Art

Oh, tiptoe from the garden
By the garden of the willow tree
And tiptoe through the tulips with me
—Tiny Tim 

Tiptoe Through the Tulips
watercolor and ink 
6x9 inch Arches 140#hp paper

This wildlife illustration was inspired by a squirrel outside my studio window. Tulips on the window ledge inside the studio found their way into the painting.  I love the color in this painting. Although we think we see squirrels as brown or gray, this brown squirrel is made up of many colors including cadmium orange, burnt sienna, cobalt blue and yellow ochre. Click on the image to see the many colors in this painting. 
Available at My Etsy gallery shop where you will see an image of the full painting.
