At the end of the second day of working on this painting I feel that I’ve done about as much as I can do with the background. I wanted to finish that before I turned my full attention to the foxes and the little rise they’re sitting on.
I think that the most important thing I did with the background is adding the fallen petals on the ground beneath the trees. This, I think, gives it a touch of authenticity. So tomorrow it’s back to the foxes.
