Fox portrait in coloured pencil.

This drawing was inspired by a gorgeous portrait photograph by John Morris, who can be found here on Flickr-

His photographs from the British wildlife centre are stunning.


  1. Absolutely mesmerizing. My eye goes right to the fox eye. I am intrigued with the play of light and shadow there. Exceptional and expressive! Love it!

    1. Thank you Leslie,

      I will hopefully be updating this post soon, as I’ve made some small changes to this drawing. For example, in this post the neck fur feels a little rushed, so I’ve neatened that up with some burnishing.
