Otter Study finished

"Otter Study"
Image size 12x8"

After a couple of weeks of ignoring this Otter drawing, I finally got back to it at this weekend's show. It was a fairly quiet weekend (everyone out enjoying the sun), so I had plenty of time to finish this up.
I don't come across many otters in the Dales, so the reference photo used for this drawing was kindly donated by an excellent photographer, Jeff Hawkins. You can view more of his photographs at
I'm exhibiting at the Harrogate Flower Show this weekend, so I need to get my stock levels up and get this little one printed and mounted .
Oh, and a note for future reference - NEVER draw wet fur again!

Great drawing as usual Nolon, he looks like a youngster. I like the way you have captured the wet fur. Nice!

Oh, and I also like your new website.
