Winter Fox oil 15'' x 24''

I apologise for taking so lopng between postings.
I have been asked to show how a painting progresses. I have just finished this fox, and took some snaps of the painting from start to finish.
This shows how I begin. . I begin with a tonal wash. I try to get the basic shape and feel of the subject, but very loose.You can see that I have reused a board. Those deer were never going to work!!! (Leslie Anne, this is for you, I hope you find it useful!!)
