He’ll poke his head out of that hole, see this man standing here, and he won’t dare come down.

Book: Where The Red Fern Grows

The very first time Billy takes Old Dan and Little Ann hunting, they tree a raccoon in the biggest sycamore in the river bottoms. The tree is too big for Billy to cut down by himself so he starts to leave, but the dogs refuse to go. Billy realizes that after all the hard work that he put the dogs through, he can’t disappoint them, so he takes out his axe and starts chopping.  Two days later,  Billy starts to doubt that he can cut it down.  That evening his grandpa shows up to take him back home for dinner.  Before they leave, Grandpa shows Billy an old trick to keep the raccoon in the tree for the night, he builds him a scarecrow.

    I love the brush strokes you’ve left in each figure. Whenever I use gouache I always try to get that perfect matte finish, but with your work it looks lively and energetic!
