Original Watercolor 11x14
After taking a workshop and working on my first animal portrait of my daughters kitten, I wanted to continue to explore and expand my skills in painting animals. A reference photo shared with artists by David Reeves Payne, grabbed me and I knew I had to give this wild fox a try.
I have used some unusual granulating watercolor paints from Daniel Smith both for the background and some of the foxes fur. It measures 11"x14" and the original is available in my Etsy Shop - The Creators Palette
I imagine it would make a wonderful piece for a den, library or even a cabin. The colors are dark and rich and the eyes of this wild fox draw you in.
