Actually, my horse Puddin' doesn't know that I have been painting, but it hasn't been anything that I wanted to share. I have also been doing a sketch a day while I wait for my photos to upload onto my blog. Last week I started a watercolour painting of a red fox, only using red, blue and yellow. It started off, well...I was ready to toss it out and start over, but I kept adding to it, letting it dry and adding layers, a little each day. Finally, today I had a breakthrough, and figured out how to fix it. I am excited about the results. I used a black tipped fine tipped marker to outline and add small details, and I used watercolour pencils to fix up the area near the fox's snout. I was trying to put a hole in front of him, but it ended up being a dark ugly focal point...so after a bunch of alterations, I turned the ugly into pretty rocks. I think so anyways. I have spent the day researching red foxes so that I can create a children's story to go with it. So for now, here is the painting that I am positively excited about...
