Utter Otter Bliss by Earleywine Utter Otter Bliss by Earleywine
8 x 10 charcoal on ivory bark paper.

This drawing came about when I received a request for drawing of an otter. I don't have any good reference photos of otters, but thank goodness for [link] , who not only has some wonderful photographs of otters, but was kind enough to give me permission to use them for a drawing. Thank you so much!!

All I can say is " WOW! " this is super.

if you need some animal pics or birds for reference, check out my gallery... you're bound to find something that would make a great drawing!. all I ask is you let me know which one you'll be using and give a "photo credit" for the model.
