Hedgehog in the Strawberry Patch

A hedge grove isn't the only place you will find the beloved hedgehog. They are known to frolic in the odd strawberry patch. This British Hedgehog was painted using gouache, watercolour and colour pencils. I like to exaggerate colours a little to add extra interest to my wildlife art, so here we pink, purples yellows appearing in an animal which is traditionally a variety of brown tones. The key elements in this piece are that sweet little face and painstakingly painted spines.
