Vulpecula

Image

Hi guys! Here’s a personal project I just finished up as a thank-you gift to a very special friend. The animal is, of course, a red fox, and the constellation in the sky is Vulpecula (“The Fox”). For this little painting I used gouache and milk paint on an untreated wood panel. I loved the panel as a substrate- mostly because of the limits it put on me. Gouache is meant to be used with paper, so the extra time each layer took to dry into the wood really forced me to take my time with color and layering decisions. I feel great about this little guy- and I’m definitely going to do some more experimentation with these wood panels and see what comes out of it.
