The Thinker-Red Fox

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

This is my painting for the WDE at Wet Canvas. Wendy was the hostess graciously supplied the reference photos.

The red fox appealed to me...looking so deep in thought. I loved the sharp sunlight on the head and ears. The background is pure imagination. I used it as a chance to play with loose, impasto, colorful blobs of paint on the end of the brush and the palette knife.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed it!
