Red Fox – Postcards for the Lunch Bag

Artwork-Zebra Zensations Technical Pen and Daniel Smith watercolor on a Hahnemühle Rough Watercolor Postcard.

If you are looking for my review of the ArtBin Sidekick Art & Craft Supply Storage with Paint Pallet Tray you can find it here.

Did you know that the Urban Fox lives and average of 18 months-3 years while the rural fox is more likely to live 10 – 12 years?

I met up with one of my friends, Lori, for coffee and art. I forgot to bring any reference photos, so this was doodled from out of my head. It’s fun doing that!

Good company, relaxing artwork, good coffee – a really sweet afternoon!

  1. He’s adorable, love the way you coloured him and finished off with the black swirls, wonderful art you start off my weekend with beauty. Thank you and have fun today

    1. Many thanks, Joan! The black swirls were actually one of the first things I did. I drew the fox, then drew the swirls (squirkling) around him, then painted. Since I was chatting and not paying a whole lot of attention to what I was doing, I knew the squirkling would add plenty of interest without requiring a lot of detail. It’s also a good way to ‘save’ a painting you don’t like. Squirkle over a good portion of it and paint again. Creates really fantastic texture and abstract shape.

  2. I recognize him! He is lovely. It amazed me how quick you sketched him out. I was planning on watchig you do a sketch to see you in action! By the time I looked over, you had him all done… a split second. Next time maybe we can bring reference photos and you can show me how you work your magic. 😉

  3. lt’s like the evening setting sun is hitting him. Great colors/shadows….and “squiggle-circles!” Very effective for texture without overwhelming! The thin pen lines help. Lovely!!!!
