How To Draw A Squirrel on a Painted Rock


squirrel painted rock in the garden

This Squirrel painted rock stone is a super cute and fun fall rock painting activity that you will love. As a child I remember going to the woods with my parents and seeing the squirrels running through the woodland with their huge bushy tails.

My childhood memories certainly influenced the way I created this Squirrel painted rock with the big brown and peach tail.

I sure hope you enjoy reading this Squirrel painted rock tutorial and enjoy creating new rock stones during the fall season.

How to paint a Squirrel painted rock step 1: 

draw the outline of the squirrel onto the rock with a pencil

Begin by drawing a Squirrel onto your clean stone.

Sometimes I like to paint the outline directly onto my rock using a posca pen but I find using a sharp pencil at the start can really help to get the detail right.

If you don't feel quite confident enough in your drawing skills to freehand a squirrel onto a rock, try following along with an illustration guide like Draw So Cute's guide to drawing a squirrel.

If you follow Wendy from Draw So Cute's tutorial for drawing a squirrel, yours will look different than mine of course but the procedure is still the same!

Once you have your squirrel drawn on your rock in pencil, move on to step 2!

Use the paint pen to paint half the Squirrels tail, leaving the other half for the brown paint pen.
