Such a lovely painting, I really like how you have toned in all the browns.
Many thanks Ann! I did most of this 'wet in wet', but I think the fact I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him made him a pleasure to paint! :)
He is gorgeous!
Thank you Judy ... so pleased you didn't stay away from your Blog for too long. So good to see you! :)
he's gorgeous, I love otters - was hoping to see one at the weekend at Leighton Moss as they've been seen there but no luck unfortunately! You've painted him beautifully xx
Thank you so much, Sharon! I haven't seen an Otter in the flesh but they have always fascinated me. Hope all is well with you! xx
I can see why you couldn't resist this little chap. He's gorgeous. You've painted him with lots of alert inquisitiveness just like an otter should have.
Hi Laura, I'm delighted you felt I have caught his 'look'. Many thanks for your great comments! :)
Gorgeous indeed, Ingrid! Great job!Warm regards.
Many thanks Konstantina, I hope you're having a great weekend! :)

Thank you for the birthdaywish you made me on my blog! I had a great day with my three kids visiting yesterday. My oldest is now 21 and has left for his own living and the two girls are with there father for a few days but wanted to visite mum for the birthday. So it was really nice with the whole family gathered!Anyway; Such a sweet little creature you have caught on this painting. And you did a great job with him. A nice blend of warm and cool colours too. I hope to see more cute ones like this one in the future!Take care!

Hi Laurie ... so good to see you here and many thanks for your super comments. :)
I'm afraid I have had to introduce word verification as I had 96 spammer posts when I returned from holiday. I hope after a short while I can try again with no word verification, I do hope you understand ... thank you Ingrid.
