Fox Paintings...

"Ready or Not!"
"Fall Colors"

One of my very favorite animals, these creatures are a joy to paint. Their beautiful coloring makes for an eye catching and colorful painting.

These are painted in acrylic on Gessobord. The running fox is titled "Ready or Not!" and I tried to make this fox look like he has just spotted a rabbit or something off canvas and is bounding after it.

The other painting, "Fall Colors", was fun as far as all those beautiful colors, but it really gave me some problems! I repainted the background many times, trying to find the right amount of detail to compliment the fox. The background says "forest" without explaining every pine cone or leaf.
