Earlier this year, I mentioned working on a series of artworks featuring some of our wild canines since 2018 is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese calendar. Other things come up, as they do, but I’m finally able to get back to work on this series. I’ve been working on a couple of small paintings of red foxes as well as a sketch completed for a larger painting. I’m starting with the red fox since I saw one this Spring and have some great reference photos to work with. Here are the finished results of these two small studies so far. I’m painting on Aquabord and having to relearn how to apply the paint since I haven’t attempted one of these since last year. I’m having fun though! Any wild canines you can think of that I should add to the list, let me know! Emma, my very own “wild at times” canine thinks a painting of her should be included too. I just might have to give it a try.
