Juvenile Wolf Pup
I can't resist pups of any kind really. Pups at this stage of development are awkward and clumsy.
They are quit humorous to watch as well. I began this painting with full intend of completing it by the Reflections of Nature show next weekend. HOWEVER...... I'm moving through it more slowly
than anticipated and refuse to rush the process. I know I'm really going to love the end result if I
take my time.
This painting is a 12" x 12" acrylic on board. I have all the reference to 5 pups, all one litter. I think a large painting is in order! I haven't done a large painting of multiple wolves before. (Why is that? ha ha ha)
I've been struggling with brushes lately. I think it's probably every couple of years a manufacturer will
decide one brush or several will be replaced by another design and or material. And in my humble opinion, not with the best results. I'm once again in search of the perfect detail brush having marginal results with same.
For the first time ever, I'm using a liner for hair! WHAT? That's just crazy, but hey.... if it works, I really don't care what it's original purpose was.
I'm open to suggestions from you artists out there. Please, offer up some suggestions. : )
