Fox portrait

Hi all

Hope eveyone's well. I haven't been around for a while so it's good to see what everyone is up to.

This is a fox - well, actually a foxy lady (a vixen!) on La Carte 12 x 10 inches.

I can't remember what I posted last, but I know I haven't posted this as I've only just completed it.

Happy painting! Kat

Re: Fox portrait

When I saw your thread, I knew I'd be in for a treat. Yes, you've done it again! You've put so much life into the eyes of the foxy lady that I know she will turn my way any minute. I also like how you handle your backgrounds. Nicely done!!!

Re: Fox portrait

The fox is beautiful, but I am also so impressed by your background. I am finding backgrounds to be one of the harder parts of my pet portraits. I am going to study your technique!

Re: Fox portrait

I'm with Deb. The fox is done beautifully (the touches of blue/lavender in the fur is genius), but the background is magical. Brava, all around!

Re: Fox portrait

Re: Fox portrait

Oh this is exquisite. I love the colors, the detail in the fur, the gaze of the fox, and the delicate foliage. Beautiful piece.
