Fox painting update

After many re-workings ive finally settled for this version of my 'smiley fox' painting.This really was a steep learning curve in portraying varying lighting conditions and at one point i thought i'd never get there but finally i'm happy that it looks believeable and although there is still some tinkering to go it is for the most part complete.On a different note to day i visited my publishing house to final proof my latest limited edition print 'Drifter' an african elephant piece.I was truly stunned by the quality of the printed image and part of the edition have been enlarged considerably to produce a huge eye-catching,wall dominating print which has lost nothing of the detail for being enlarged.The new image will debut at Olympia at the London horse show in december along with the framed original drawing.

Your painting is going well Clive - I'm taking notes!

My own experience finding someone to accurately reproduce my art work wasn't especially positive. If you've found someone who can do so to your satisfaction, you should think yourself very fortunate. Good luck with it.

cheers peter,i am indeed very fortunate with my printers.ive been working with them since 1999 and there quality has been consistently high,indeed they have been selected by many giclee printer manufacturers to test and refine there new machines.

I really love what you've done with the fox painting Clive; looks very realistic to me and love the light as well as his expression.

thankyou colette,i'm really pleased in a kind of self-satisfied way that i managed to overcome the difficulties i had with the shadows etc,i learnt a lot with this little painting and i'm hoping it will stand me in good stead for future images:-)
