This little fox was inspired by the colours of Autumn. I'm not a huge fan of Fall but natures colour pallet is pretty awesome this time of year.
I took the time to document my process along the way to show the different stages of mixed media that I used.
I used a variety of mediums for this painting to get the effects that I wanted. I started out with the background leaves using my favorite Winsor & Newton watercolours.
After a few layers of watercolour I used a sharpie pen to outline everything and clean up my corners. Then I pulled out my Faber Castell pencil crayons to really get into some detail.
After creating layers of fur with pencil crayons I used my smallest paintbrush to create white highlights with fluid acrylic paint. When I got to this stage the fox finally started looking cute!
This 8" by 10" Autumn Fox painting is now listed in my Etsy shop!
