Flare Fox

I took to the watercolour paper again, but instead of applying the coffee layers first and allowing them to dry which I practiced in my squirrel painting, I went in with the watercolours and laced the image with coffee afterwards which resulted in coffee detail being lost.

I used drawing gum to keep the bright white chest and muzzle of the fox though I should have waited until the end of the painting before removing it as my impatience lead to his white fur getting a little mucky. I made this image with watercolour, ink, drawing gum, pigment, coffee and pastel.
