Meet the Swamp Fox, also known as, Francis Marion. A patriot from South Carolina, General Francis fought valiantly during the war for American Independence. The Swamp Fox refused to give up when most of the American troops fled north after the battle of Camden. During a time when the British nearly controlled South Carolina, Francis Marion gathered together a group of loyal patriots and led daring raids against the Red-Coats. The Swamp Fox and his brave men fought with increasing boldness until the British troops under General Cornwallis long-awaited defeat at the siege of Yorktown.
In this picture, I’ve drawn a colorful General Francis listening to the report of a brave patriot frog as the general prepares another attack against the British.
The colors of these characters and the bravery of the men who inspired them made them instant friends. Our society needs more brave people like the Swamp Fox who stand up for just beliefs and refuse to give them up. Today I’m going to try and live a wee bit more like Francis Marion.
I hope you’ve enjoyed meeting the Swamp Fox as much as I’ve enjoyed creating him. I drew the ink portion of this painting with micron pens, a nib pen, and black India Ink. For the color part of this painting, I used Windsor and Newton watercolor paints alongside Pebeo watercolors.
