Started on the background as always
Treating the top half like a painting on it’s own and working in the foxes from left to right.
Pastel is all about building up layers of colour from dark to light. I work across the fur gradually building up depth by adding the lighter values as I go.
Now I’ve blocked in that bottom half background. Pretty much the same order I do the top half in.
Ah the rubbish…it’s the theme of this painting that I love. The beauty of the wild next the ugliness of the urban.
The reflections are pretty much just a slightly looser version of what I’ve done on the top half I’m on the homeward stretch at this stage.
