Scurrying Squirrels

The poor light has prevented me from capturing the colours properly.
These are red squirrels, I hasten to add.
I am happy with how I have drawn them. It was hard work for me to keep them simple and avoid them looking too cute.
I tried to follow Mr De Morgan when arranging the squirrels and the foliage but a border would have worked well I think.

These are lovely. I have been asked to create a squirrel motif for an enamel ware set. Yours are rather inspiring and have kick atarted the creative juices.

Love the arabesques of beasts and flora. A double delight!

Those are lovely squirrels, I enjoy their movement. Nice.

Gosh! I love these :-)
You've really caught the movement of a squirrel in the tree branches, without being twee.

Thank you all for your kind comments. So these went down well. I'll try more scampering creatures in the new year.
