How to Paint A Snow Fox With Watercolour Paint

Learn how to paint snow foxes with Simply Watercolour Paint by using this step-by-step guide created by Daler-Rowney artist Amylee Paris, and is easy for beginners to follow and explore using watercolour paint!

Step 1

Drawing Outlines

Using the black fine liner, draw a fox in the snow. You can reproduce the design from this tutorial or create another one.

Step 2

Orange Fur

Use the orange paint to colour the fox's fur.

Step 3

Dark Tones

Take the burnt sienna to paint all the extremities of the fox (ear, tail, paws, muzzle, etc).

Step 4

Blue Landscape

To create a snowy setting, use white and ultramarine in small touches. Use the brush pen (transparent handle)
At the foot of the fox apply touches of colour, leaving some areas blank.
In the background, draw shadows and trees that are a little blurred.

Step 5

The Forest At The Left Corner

In the left-hand corner of the drawing, add silhouettes of trees with black paint. Use the fine point brush (blue handle) to draw tree branches.

Step 6

Sunset

Then take 3 sticks of fluorescent pastel, colour the sky in a gradient way and then fade the colours using paper towels around your fingers. This effect gives a fantastic sunset atmosphere at your drawing.

Step 7

Details and Finishing Touches

With the black fine liner, add detail to the trees in the background and add a few sprigs of grass to the fox's feet and that’s it!
