Red Fox

By Marc Alexander from his ‘In The Balance‘ series. Red Fox, oil on canvas, 40cm by 50cm, (2015).


Red Fox

The red fox is found in Europe and Asia and has also been introduced to Australia. It has a short lifespan, only 18 months to 2 years. The Red Fox is mostly nocturnal, although it will sometimes venture out in the day. Unlike other mammals, it hears low-frequency sounds very well. It can hear small animals digging underground and will dig in the dirt or snow to catch prey. They are carnivores and stalk prey, much like a cat. The fox doesn’t usually use a den and will often sleep in the open, wrapping its tail around it, to keep warm. Fox hunting has been a sport for many centuries and became a traditional sport of the nobility. Red foxes are still widely persecuted as pests, with human-caused deaths among the highest. Too me foxes are beautiful animals and I always enjoy painting them.


Archival Prints

Many of Marc’s artworks are available as fine art digital prints. Professionally photographed and printed on large format inkjet printers, these prints are limited edition numbered bottom left and signed bottom right. The paper used is 320g Hahnemuhle archival watercolour paper or Van Gogh cotton canvas. The process employs fade resistant, archival inks, which boast a 100+ year fade-proof guarantee.

These prints are also available in varying sizes. The paper prints are sold plastic wrapped on an acid-free foamcore backing board. The prints on canvas can be provided stretched or rolled in a core for easy transporting. The canvas print is treated with a high quality scratch resistant matt art-sealant. Directly behind the stretched canvas print is a fixed board which gives the frame rigidity, prevents warping and ensures the frame hangs flush against the wall. Large frames are cross braced to further prevent warping.
