Some of my Christmas cards were too lovely to just throw away so I thought I’d have a go at recycling a few by adding my own artwork to them. I choose to paint foxes as they’re colourful and interesting creatures with lots of character. This project was quite a challenge for me as the cards were small and my eyes aren’t what they used to be! But also fun to do! I painted an acrylic base onto the card in a rough shape of the fox, then drew the image in pen, finally adding gouache. I think the combination of acrylic and gouache has helped to add a bit of texture to the painting. What do you think? I hope you like them!
