‘Foxy Loxy- the sky is falling down’ watercolour fox

I have spent Sunday painting this fox, it was raining so hard this morning, so riding was a no go. Hopefully I can ride tomorrow, as the sun has been kind and made suggestions of making an appearance??? Looks like it will be a schooling session, as the pony drifts have started in the new forest, and latchmoor, our area is starting at 9 am …….. Commoners round up the ponies and foals, they are tail marked, branded if needed, checked, wormed and foals removed if to be sold, then out they go for another year of freedom, ( I have popped in a picture of last years drift, it is a great sight, in the forest, but best kept out of the way if you don’t know what you are doing)

sorry for deviation…..what can I say, it’s a fox!

Ha ha,

Named after my fav childhood book, chicken licken…featuring, Foxy Loxy, Turkey lurkey, goosey loosy , ducky lucky and chicken licken….all because the sky was falling down, you can imagine how it ended? The way it would in nature, I am sure such books would be banned nowadays? Do you remember it?

so here is Foxy Loxy- the sky is falling down.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

  2. Yippee, so pleased you remember the book, I have a couple of my old ladybird books, some of the stories were brutal…….’wolf and the seven kids’, and some not quite so, ‘the magic porridge pot’, some just plain mad….’the quangle wangle tree’

    Beautiful. You can feel the texture of the fur.
    Don’t forget “Hansel and Gretel”. Fairy tales seem to dramatize our deepest fears.

  4. Those city streets have a different beauty…….I have a passion for street scenes in art, but I don’t paint then myself, just buy them.
