The Fabulous Mr Fox...super painting Michael.

I love khadi paper Michael and I love your fox!

Thanks Sylvia, Kirstie and Louise.

Good title for a good sketch Michael. Well caught.

Thanks Jim. When I was a lad my dad used to call me Mickey the fox. Can't think why.

Great colours Michael, I love the washes, not used khadi paper does it make such a difference to the watercolour 😃

I too love khadi paper, Mr Fox is really special, very expressive on this paper! He melts into it so beautifully

Like it, Michael. Apart from the excellently painted fox, I love this loose background you've been using, it conveys all that's needed and allows the fox to 'pop' out. Great.

Thanks Linda, Thalia and Lewis. It bleeds a bit more Linda and it kind of let's the paint hang about wet for a while, so corrections can be made easier.

Captured the look of the fox perfectly, Michael.

A great fox Michael, we have one like this coming into our garden to eat the bird seed on the lawn.

Thanks Michael will have to give it a go 😀

Thanks Seth and Margaret. Wish we had Margaret.

Hang on Studio Wall
