Mustelidae by harpyja Mustelidae by harpyja
Currently I am involved in a project about the European Mink (Mustela lutreola, left), which is back at the Steinhuder Lake in Germany now. I did this illustrations for a flyer, which shows the akin species compared to it. You can see the American Mink in the middle (Neovison vison) and the European Polecat (Mustela putorius) right.

No idea about the hours I spend on this. Watercolour on thick scribble paper.

It was much fun to paint fur - I never did this before!

Aww, they look very cute and accurate too! Especially the difference between the American mink and the other two is obvious. Really nice work :D

With a lot of time, a very small brush and lots of motivation :)
