This is just getting started and will require a bit of imagination if you are going to believe me that this is a red bat (Lasiurus borealis). The color is a bit off. And it needs another layer or two and details but I'm pretty satisfied the first wash is suggestive of a bat if not a red bat. Or is it? I'm feeling really out of practice. Summer flew by without much sketching and fall is following suit. It felt good to be home sloshing paint this evening if only for twenty minutes. Also felt good to walk away from it before overworking/overthinking kicked in. I'm pretty sure this won't be the last time you see a bat on this blog. It's almost Bat Week in the world of conservation. And who doesn't love Bat Week?
