Swamp - Final


Definitely need a new name here. "Afternoon with Fox" ?  "Bayeux Moment"?
 Worked on the trees giving each level a slightly different feel with different colour combos. The three trees standing in the water have some moss at their bases.
Ever since I put the fox in the picture I'd been wanting to put a little shadow under his rump, so everything had to have at least a suggestion of one.

This had originally been a piece of stained glass. Had I outlined everything with a black satin stitch it may have felt that way at the finish. The water reflection would have been very different and I was afraid the tree tops would have been heavy. So I changed direction as I worked through this.
