A trip to the British Wildlife Centre in Crawley brought me into contact with this gorgeous fox. I have foxes that come through my garden (sometimes quietly, sometimes like it's party-time for foxes!), but they are of a more nervous disposition. So, though I've drawn and painted them before now, there has been an isolating door between us to prevent them from running away(!).
This was an altogether different experience and I was close enough to touch him, should he have let me! It wasn't just the pose that attracted me, but the detail I could see in the fur. Great fun to draw - a delight to do from start to finish!
