Backyard visitor

Gray Fox
Acrylic on canvas panel
My husband was so excited to show me the photo of this little guy, who was captured on our wildlife cam near Escambia Bay in Florida. The image was not very high resolution, but I was more captivated by the wary pose.  It is a gray fox, but it has tawny red accents all over its body.  I think the snout is probably a little shorter than what I painted, but I was able to get this version done pretty quickly by painting without sketching first.
