Wishful Thinking


This is the nearly complete fox that I created using a reverse painting technique.


I started with a 18 x 24 wood panel covered with Citra Solv treated National Geographic magazine pages that I had scrubbed part of the ink off through my own  stencil.


You can begin to see things taking shape.


I also blocked out areas for plants and an overhanging tree branch.


Almost done… I think he looks kind of wistful, don’t you?

  1. Aw he really does look wistful. I love the way you do leaves and trees and those pages give such depth! Do you start with plywood? I’d love to find a way to start with wood panels that are cheaper than the gessobord I’ve been using (by Ampersand).
