My Latest Wolf Drawing

copyright Barbara Di Lella wolf drawing 2013

The latest wolf. 
I've decided to work much larger than I usually do. The drawing itself is 12in. x 18in. (30cm. x 46cm.) Lots of adjustments still need to be made yet. We'll see how far I get. The body is done, though not shown.

My studio is starting to look like it used to when I was painting and illustrating. There are many drawings accumulating and lots of reference materials scattered throughout. And with the reading, I'm learning quite a bit, not just about the animals (a wolf's front paw measures 4.5in. x 3.5 in. (12cm. x 9cm.)and the back paw is slightly smaller: 4in. x 3in. (10cm. x 7.5cm.). Also, they only live to 6 or 8 years in the wild) but also about various wildlife artists worldwide for the last 150 years or so. 

Before I forget

Happy Valentine's Day
to you
