Great!

These must be the brushes when you work on canvas. Great!!!! Very beautiful red fox. Laughing out loud

Thanks ha55ha !

I actually did this in a similar way that I would do a painting...except I didn't have to scrape my palette clean when I finished. Foxes are very paintable.

Interesting!

Glad to know that every step here resemble your canvas drawings.

Do I have to scrape the palette after I draw with oil color, too? I thought it would be in creamy texture all the time since it is so hard to dry. Shock

About scraping palette Ha55ha

Its a good idea to scrape it clean right after you finish, just for that reason, since its much easier to clean off while its still soft. It will get hard after a few days if you get lazy (like I do sometimes), then you really have to scrape. I use a 1/4" thick piece of glass as a palette sometimes. Otherwise I mostly use sheets of white cooking parchment paper that I clip on a board.I buy rolls of it, Very cheap, yet very durable, and I can just toss it out when I'm done. Much cheaper than palette paper from the art store.I recommend it to everybody. I'm in a much drier climate than you, so paint probably dies faster here. If I use it right from the tube, with no medium, as I usually do, a canvas usually will be dry to the touch in 4 days to a week. I talk to much. Probably way more than you wanted to know. I hope you are painting with blazing brushes soon. You will be great !
