Hand Needlefelted Fox

Been so busy lately have really been neglecting my blog.

But I have been working on foxes since January.

This was the first one done over January. I’ve stuck with those earthy fabrics and colours throughout as its cutesy and rustic.

You can see where I have used fabric marker to outline the main charcteristics.

I gently build up the colours and tonal areas.

The face has such a pursed look and softness.

The tree came almost last, I felt it was a little lonely looking in terms of composition so added free hand stitching and fabric to create depth.

The second fox, I have made into a Giclee Print.

WHats a giclee print as opposed to all the others?

well its professionally scanned and edited to fully represent the original in terms of texture, colour, depth and longevity.

The image above is the beautiful Sarah holding the smaller of the two sizes with Hamish, but below is the actual print.

Its amazing to look at and touch, defies its flat surface.

Here it is with FREE P&P for a limited time only.

Here is a sneak peak of my two new foxes, not yet framed, as the frames have just been painted and need waxing

They will be a bit tighter in the mount, but like the overall composition and a true representation of the stunning clever and cute Irish Fox.
