Doodlewash Prompt. Favorite color. Did you know that foxes are the only canine with partially retractable claws? From a reference photo by Malcolm Smith

And today’s Doodlewash Prompt. Favorite color. I don’t have a favorite color. I’m more about the way colors work together. One of my favorite color combos is Aussie Red Gold and Lavender.

Remember -July is (drum beat) … WORLD WATERCOLOR MONTH! Be sure to check Doodlewash for giveaways and check out the cool World Watercolor Month items for sale! The goal is to raise money for The Dreaming Zebra Foundation and support arts education and our future artists.

  1. I’ve long admired the way you use color unexpectedly, especially in shadows. The pink flowers provide a perfect accent. This is a lovely painting. Foxes are endearing creatures, and this one is at the top of that quality. Lucky hubby.

    1. Thank you, Sharon! I based this painting on a photo that one of my friends on Flickr took. He’s always seeing foxes in his suburban (do they call them suburban in England?) neighborhoods. It makes me a bit envious, though sorry for the foxes. They tend not to have long life spans living that close to humans.

      1. We’ve got coyotes here in suburban Southern California (Orange County.) During this lockdown, with so little activity and almost no traffic, we’ve been overrun by them, and they’re becoming fearless. Not a good thing in suburbia.
