My newest painting, the Vibrant Flame – Red Fox, is now available online for purchase as a fine art print and much more in my online stores. This painting was completed in December of 2018, and depicts a Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) portrait in winter. The foxes normal bright red and orange colors are amplified, with the inclusion of purple and blue as well. This painting was created with acrylic paints on board, and measures 11″ wide by 14″ tall. The original is for sale, if you are interested please Contact Me.
Here you can see a closeup of my fox painting. Many layers went into creating this painting. I used heavy body acrylics for this one, which are thicker and more opaque than traditional acrylic paints. I wanted to still use bright colors, but also wanted a more realistic look. I used a large round brush with a narrow tip to create the fur details. The acrylic paint was watered down so it would apply more smoothly. On the orange areas, I started with an underpainting of medium orange, and layered red, yellow, and a lighter orange on top in many layers to achieve this effect.
It still has a somewhat impressionistic effect, but still realistic at the same time. I have tried to do a more loose “painterly” style of paintings in the past, by just laying down paint in big clumps using tone and color. I do love this style. However, being a former colored pencil artist. I have found that I just cannot get away from using lots of small details in my paintings, so I try to incorporate that into my own style.
