Sleepy Fox – Original Conté Art Piece 12″ x 16.5″


Photographed in natural light, this medium-sized art piece is of a sleepy fox – original conté art.

Only 1 left in stock


It was a bright Autumn day when I looked outside the house as I worked on the Hello Autumn colouring pages. Suddenly, I thought I would quite like to draw a sleepy little fox, covered in the autumn leaves I always find so bright and cheerful.

Off I went, making quite a mess of the house as I dug out first the sugar paper I would need, and then the conté crayons and their pencil counterparts. It was a dark and dreary Sunday, and so I made sure to bring some light and warmth into my drawing.

I have filmed the drawing process, which I will be posting to YouTube in due course. You may find it a nice watch if you like this art piece. (I will update the description when I have the video published).

Framing Advice

To save you on postage, this piece comes neither mounted nor framed. However, I will be outlining how to have it done and what to look for in the information that I will send out with the artwork.

Quick notes:

  • Because conté is similar to pastels (it’s quite a dusty medium) it cannot be framed with plexiglass, which some frames use. When picking out a frame take care that it is real glass
  • Ensure that there is always a gap between the artwork and the glass of the frame to avoid smudging. While a small amount of fixative has been applied, there is still a risk of smudging
  • I strongly recommend getting the artwork professionally framed to avoid accidental damage
