An Ermine and Pink Pants

The finished painting! I got to make some fun textures on this one using salt and a sponge. A sponge!

And a selection of my color studies, just for funsies:

Study #1 on this sheet (the one I ended up going with, if it wasn't obvious) was actually the 17th color combination I came up with. Never fall in love with your first idea!

I have something in store for this painting. Soon!


  1. So great, Ellen! I love that you made your own sponge texture, too! Cool to see the color studies—though I'd definitely say you landed in the right spot.

  2. OH MY GOSH! Wow look at that! hehe

    It looks like you had a blast making this, nice work!

    Thanks for the video share, that woman is beyond excited about what she is doing with that sponge.

  3. Really cute! And I love the way you drew the trees.
