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’m working on a realism piece and have taken snapshots of the process. I’d like to share them with you! This is the phase four, five and six. If you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear them… enjoy
I want to work on form now, bring things forward, push others back.
I’m really trying at this point to make sure that the lighting is right and that the sunlight through the window is hitting the right parts of the flowers.
