Fox Jump - a work in acrylic and thread
My First Finished Artwork as Mary B. Highstreet!
Not sure where I am going with this series yet, but this is the idea for a new series of artworks I want to embark on - when I started this idea I was going for something modern and simple, juxtaposing a single action with action lines. Much like a piece of music, I can hear Mozart's Symphony No. 25 in G. Minor starting as I see this jump take place.
I first created a rough sketch of the fox then added the lines spontaneously catching the rhythms and emotions I saw in the fox. I then painted the fox on another paper, and threaded colors through the lines.
The colors I chose reminded me of a wild stream and silver fish! What do they remind you of?
Check back for more on this series!!
