An Old Wolf Drawing

copyright Barbara (b.d.e.) Di Lella wolf drawing

This is not a new drawing, in fact it was done when I was still in school. But I always liked it. This is a detail of the larger piece.

Clearly, artists such as Robert Bateman and M.G. Loates were greatly admired. I also spent many hours at the museum during that time; (before it was renovated) and the animals were set up in the traditional manner so that you could study them easily. Most of those sketch books, however, have been lost. But I still have a book I bought way back then by W. Frank Calderon, "Animal Painting and Anatomy"


  1. O wow, I absolutely love this one! It's gorgeous!

  2. So, You have always had these wonderful skills!!:)
