Curiosity

The Wolf

I have always appreciated the nature of the wolf.  They are not mean and ugly creatures (from a distance).  Yes, they are wild animals and should be respected as such.  Instead, words I would use to describe them would include:  playful, social, intelligent, loyal, family orientated, and curious.    Check out the Wolf at Canadian Geographic for some great facts.

The Art

When I started this drawing it was actually on completely different paper.  I have learned not to work on my sketch at the kitchen table.  Honey, paper and graphite do not mix well. So, I started over and I am glad I did.  The original piece was on paper with a deep tooth making it hard to achieve detail.  The final sketch was done on vellum paper.  I wish I would have kept the first sketch so I could have posted the difference – next time  .
