Artist's Description

An Eastern Gray Squirrel pauses momentarily before scurrying off up the newly spring leaved Maple branches into the higher canopy of the forest.

The Eastern Gray Squirrel suggests that it should be predominantly gray, but it can also be a reddish color. The underneath is typically white. In some populations, like the one shown however, the melanistic form, which is almost pure black is found. The solid shaded form is dominant on Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada, where it has been introduced. There are also genetic variations within these, including individuals with black tails and black colored squirrels with white tails. The head and body length is from 23 to 30 cm, the tail from 19 to 25 cm and the adult weight varies between 400 and 600 grams.

In Lightroom and Photoshop, I decided to try something different. I played with the tools available in an attempt to acquire a simplifyed dreamy painterly like effect. I am quite happy with my first attempt!
