Illustration: Sleepy Time

The finished Dormice!

I'm quite pleased with how they turned out – it was quite tough refraining from painting them all soft and furry, and sticking with the flatter colours of Caravanning. The two look nice together, and the (long-term) plan is to have four hedgerow pictures, two portrait and two landscape, to make a set. There are things to do before I get round to that, however! 

'Sleepy Time' done in Winsor & Newton and Reeves watercolours and a sepia PITT Artists Pen.
About 15 hours not-so-solid work. Part of that time was due to the higher detail in the nest and berries, and part to my being lazy – it probably should have been more like 10 hours.
