Completed watercolor painting of a fox (unfortunately too large to scan):
He’s a pretty handsome fellow.
A fox watercolor painting:
I am planning to tweak it further and add in more blues and splatters for the background. I didn’t mix most of the pigments; I used a set of watercolor paints I obtained from a long time ago and each tube is already some manufactured shade (…at one point in my life I’d like to try my hand at using the traditional watercolor pigments like burnt umber and vermilion…) It was a fun experiment and a nice diversion from the usual art I do.
Two skipper butterfiles I stumbled upon as they sat on my guava tree.
These insects may resemble moths, but they are actually butterfiles. They dart and dance aound lantana and other flowers in my garden. Plus they are delicious preying mantis food.
Not the most spectacular display of movement, but then again, trains are huge massive forces. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if they are coming or going, speeding up or slowing down.
