Original acrylic painting depicting a Red Fox
Original acrylic painting on canvas 60 x 40 cm
Background painted with acrylic flow technique, with the fox painted in a traditional manner.
We often see and hear the Foxes in our Dorset garden, where we back onto extensive woodland that leads directly to the New Forset. Just love the elegance of this animal and beautiful colours. Always curious and enquiring.
A common and familiar mammal, the red fox is our only wild member of the dog family. It is omnivorous, feeding on small mammals, birds, frogs, earthworms and carrion, as well as berries and fruit. It is just as likely to be seen in towns and cities, as it is in the countryside and it is now well-known for scavenging food scraps from bins, as well as catching feral pigeons and Brown rats. Males (dogs) bark, but females (vixens) make a spine-chilling scream, heard mostly in the winter when their courtship takes place.
