Reynard the Fox was a medieval European trickster figure, a nasty but charismatic character who was always in trouble but always able to talk his way out of any retribution.
I'm not so sure whether this fellow is quite so willing to talk his way out of trouble. He lies in wait in the grasses at the edge of the meadow, hidden enough from view but with full view of his surroundings.
Foxes have very cat-like features I think and quite delicate faces, legs and feet. I've had quite a few encounters with them on the farm and just the other morning saw a silver fox race across the road as I left for work. Red foxes are much more commonly seen so the silver one was a treat.
This fox is drawn on newsprint in pastel. 12" x 12" approximately.
