Hi friends! I had so much fun painting this sweet sleepy baby fox.

  1. I am so excited about this! My granddaughter just asked me if I would paint her a fox. Although she wanted one wearing a pink jacket

  3. Great realistic little fox. Love it. My eight year old granddaughter and I painted frogs this afternoon. She painted hers for a gift for her Mom but got it wrapped before I could get a photo of it. Last week she painted hers cherries. She loves to watch your videos with me and then paint.

  10. I’m so glad you showed us this without speed-ups! First of all, painting and speed-ups aren’t compatible and also, the things you tell us while you are painting … who would like to miss that?

    The fox is SO cute, now I might even give animals a try after seeing how it’s done. I can draw them but I never seemed to get the fur right in paints. I never dared to blot paint when it comes to fur because I thought the texture would look wrong and then my fur ended up too textured everywhere. It drove me nuts because I had no idea what I was doing wrong!

    About the Sennelier paintbox …. here on a German website I don’t see any difference in the description of the paintbox you are using and the 18-pan paintbox. They both are called something like „excellent“ and all seem to cost a lot. What I’d like to know is if the tiny 8-pan „SENNELIER Aquarell Set Voyage“ is student grade or artist grade too? The tiny paintbox is also sold in a small metal tin along with some brushes and a few sheets of paper, it all might even fit into a jacket pocket. Depends on the jacket!

    I have a request: could you show a video on watercolor mediums? I try to figure out the different mediums Winsor and Newton sell and of course I know what masking fluid is but that’s about it. I used to think ox gall was to remove fingerprints off the paper but it seems to do more than that. I bought iridescent medium and tried that out but the results were so awful I gave it away. They also sell something that does something to the paper but I fear I’d ruin the paper if I just try it out. I’d probably ruin my brushes and paint too!

    I also wonder if I use salt on the paper if it affects the paintbrushes (and paint in the pans) somehow. I know salt harms my own hair so it might ruin expensive brushes.

  11. I enjoyed watching this very much. I’ve done oil paintings but watercolor has always intimidated me. Now just may try it. 🙂 Thank you.
