Who doesn’t love red pandas? They look like a mix of cats and bears, and look so friendly and cuddly. I have been to zoos which have red pandas, but I am yet to spot one. I wonder if they either hide in their dens, or maybe relax high up in the trees like this guy.

This was painted as part of my limited colour palette challenge, Huely, in 2020, which also includes a Red Cardinal and a Toucan. They don’t only share the exact same colour palette, but as they are all known for sitting in trees, it made sense to give them a similar setting and background, despite living in different areas of the world.
