I’ve wanted to paint a red fox portrait for a long time. :) I got inspired by several photos and some paintings by the great wildlife artist Rien Poortvliet.
I was surprised that red foxes have such distinctive whiskers…
The title was inspired by the name of the foxglove plant (in German, the plant is called Fingerhut = thimble).

Here’s a “Making Of” of this painting, showing some basic painting techniques: rieke-b.deviantart.com/art/Mak…

Ich wollte schon lange ein Rotfuchs-Portrait malen. :) Dieses Bild wurde von mehreren Fotos und einigen Gemälden des großen Wildtiermalers Rien Poortvliet inspiriert.
Ich war ziemlich überrascht, dass Rotfüchse so ausgeprägte Barthaare haben…
Der Titel wurde inspiriert vom englischen Namen der Fingerhut-Pflanze, „foxglove“.

:D I'll add it to my to-do list! ;) Try painting a Grey Fox. They're not as brightly colored, but they have neat patterns and their greys are pretty complicated with white ticking. And they're short and stocky! :la:
