Hedgehog in Progress

This young British hedgehog I am painting in contrast to a hedgehog I created in the past.

I painted the old hedgehog in 2013/14 for a online magazine which looked promising at the time, but sadly didn’t take off.

It makes me laugh how much more ill considered my work was, what’s with all the black dots and weird bars?

Anyway, my recent attempt says goodbye to eccentric colours in favour of a more natural hedgehog colouration. I am using Brusho and watercolour to create my softer, snufflier hedgehog, I shall post him again when he is complete!
