I've set myself a challenge to paint one piece a day, focusing on bold colours and mark making. This is based on a family of foxes who live in the back yard of my house in Bristol. They had the run of the back lawn and would spend most sunny days sunbathing and lounging about the place. This is one of the older cubs, and the moment I saw him I knew I wanted to paint the pose. His expression is exactly the feeling we all experience when the sun finally emerges from the clouds.
