I made this little fox paintings today. She's quite obviously a drifter and a dreamer, just like me. I always take a big gulp before making a dark background on a painting, as I did for my pig portrait (see at end of this post), but I wanted the little bumblebee to show up well. I will tweak the background more in a day or so when he oils dry a bit. Here is the progression of the painting, from a rough sketch to a framed piece.
