"Woodland Encounter" is a painting by Bev Doolittle, an American artist working mainly in watercolor paints. The painting depicts native Americans on horseback as they pass through a snowy forest. The central image of the painting is a small fox.
Doolittle painted "Woodland Encounter" in February 1981. As with much of Doolittle's art, the primary theme is native Americans. The painting features a technique Doolittle refers to as "a camouflage technique" in which certain details of her art can be seen in multiple ways. Other paintings that feature this technique are "The Forest Has Eyes" and "Mesa Ruins."
In "Woodland Encounter," the snow-covered Indians blend into the white of a birch forest. The brightest feature of the painting is the central figure of a red fox.
