Stoat
Description:

Did this Stoat in watercolour but I had to paint it from a photo in an old book as I have never managed to get a good photo myself so a bit of a cheat.

Wonderful

I think drawing and paintings are the best for showing detail, probably why I use Blamey, Fitter & Fitter Wild Flowers the most :)

Lovely

Although I tend to swap between photographic and illustrated guides, I think the latter are generally more useful and Francis Rose is another great option for wild flowers.

Lovely watercolour Sheila... hope you post some more in the future.

Just fine

A really simple composition, accurate; and to my untrained eye, the layout is superb and the execution first class.
I can't draw to save my life, I really admire anyone with such skills.

Good idea!

If any of mine were anywhere near good enough, I'd be proud to see them so enhanced.

Commission

How much do I get in commission for pairing you up? How about keep up the mammal posts on iSpot! I knew we had some really nice people out there! Good luck with the paintings and I hope you post any you do here.
