Fox Illustration

This is my newly work. I very happy with the end results. I painted bright colors although it was done in transparent layers . This picture has lots of details therefore I am letting you double click to view it. I think this has been the illustration that I spent most time thus far.
I absolutely *love* to draw children but I also enjoy fairytale animals. Foxes and mice are on top of my list.
I made this illustration for a specific project that I will be sharing soon.*grin*

I went for a long walk when I first start painting this and was able to find several different leaves including oak, maple, black berries and others... these leaves truly helped me to get the colors I wanted on my painting.

I did several sketches for this work and this is only one of them. I found out that my sketches are for a basic idea ,much of my details comes while I am painting... I think this maybe due to the fact that I never draw when I painted with oils.

Oh dear....you are my mentor and I thank you for coming to see my little portrait. You are so right Tita, I am going to revisit this scene that I love and I know what I want it to look like, but my hand is novice at this. But with your determination and example, you have proven HERE that with much practice and yes, those layers, much can be achieved. Ruben just loves your fluency in colors....and your foxes are superb. THANK YOU DEAR FRIEND for always encouraging me!!!! Nita

Dear Pat, oh wow! I have to agree with both Penny, and Anita, this is spectacular! The bold colors and layering have brought the foxes to life! I too love it! I can still see your drawing style very evident, but the bold colors are new, and a great addition! I can't wait to see what comes next. Bravo dear friend. xoxo Christel
