Wolf! Adventures in Wildlife Painting

watercolor painting of a wolf

Hello all!

After I did the wonderful kitty (Bath Time) I was inspired to try a wolf.

I’m very happy with how it turned out… I wanted to capture the calm and intelligence of this lovely¬†animal, and to depict it in a different manner than usual. I see a lot of wolf pictures and artwork and they are usually somewhat menacing, or howling at the moon, but I don’t see them that way. I see a creature more like us than not… unafraid.. a brother.

I did this piece more loosely than I usually approach wildlife and I wanted the colours to ‘sing’ rather than be completely natural. So I exaggerated the shadow and light colours that I saw.

I hope you enjoy him.

Prints will be available soon.
