Fennec Fox by Greybeard

Currently unavailable for purchase

I saw a photograph of this Fennec fox a few years ago and was so intrigued I decided to have a go at painting it. This is a photograph of my efforts.
The Fennec lacks the musk glands of other fox species and lives in packs so it is classified both as a fox and as a separate species. It lives in the Sahara and is nocturnal. One image I saw showed the fox with greenery and appeared to have been taken using flash. I have also added some foliage that I think ‘might’ be found on the edge of the desert and tried to create re-create the image I came across., using other photos.

I am not an artist but but have dabbled with wood, clay, and paint over the years andand of course photography. My aim with the camea is to only use photo editing programmes to ‘tweak’ the photo, is a fraction too dark or light, to to crop and occasionally slight sharpen to highlight a particular feature.
RedBubble is inspiring,and when I see the quality of all the art produced by its members I realise how much I have to learn.
