Super pleased with how this turned out. It took me about 20 tries to get the expression right, and after that everything just came together. Then I realized I hadn't planned a background past the tree and had to wing it. I should play with watercolor brushes more, they're fun to work with.
Shoutout to SmittyG who's been posting some v cute raccoons lately which were the inspiration for this. We need more cute raccoons around here.
