A first

Somebody has asked me to paint a fox for them.  I’ve never painted a fox and my previous attempts painting fur has not been too successful.  I approached this challenge rather apprehensively.  I decided that I should try to take a loose and laissez-faire tact.  I lightly sketched a fox and then I splattered paint to help move me into a loose and relaxed mode.


I applied the water colour paint wet-in-wet, which helped the colours to blend and bleed.

The person who asked me to paint it, loves it, so the first fox I’ve ever painted is soon going to commence its journey to the UK.

Thanks for visiting.
