Well, our artist’s studio tour is over for this year and a new season begins. Time to get caught up and make some new art. The WAVE was a huge success this September so I now have a number of bare spots on the walls in my studio. I’ve started on this piece of a wolf entitled “I’m Watching You”. Just barely laying in some color mapping and jumping off points. One of the challenges with doing animals is to ensure their hair looks real so your pencil must be sharp and you use a tapered stroke with no real beginning or end otherwise the fur will look like a series of stripes. Here’s the first installment.
