24 foxy

Husb and I were visiting family this evening, very dark and wet, when we saw something in the headlights run across the road up ahead. A fox! Rather a beautiful one, sleek and well fed with a huge, fluffy, white-tipped brush. I’ve only seen an urban fox a handful of times in my entire life and just twice in Swansea. It was a real thrill. So I scribbled one. I’m getting to enjoy drawing wild animals now. I didn’t like it at first but now it’s interesting to work out the different anatomy and structure. The drawing was done from a photograph sourced from the Internet. I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with a free Markers app.

    Very good sketch. I saw once a fox in Norway, but not in urban surroundings. Have a lovely day! 😀

      Thank you. We have a large urban fox population here; they seem to thrive in the cities.

    Foxes are neat. I think I’ve seen suburban or semi rural foxes 2 or 3 times total. 🙂

      I wonder if that’s anything to do with your Mam? 😉

    Lucky you! Beautiful sketch. Too bad the original didn’t sit for you. Thank goodness for the internet!

      haha yes, the alternative is to go to the local museum and draw a stuffed one!
