'Before the Hunt'

Painted Wolf original gouache painting 31 x 30cm

My entry for the 2019 Wildlife Artist of the Year competition, hosted by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation

This piece of wildlife art is entered in to the ‘Vanishing Fast’ category.

My inspiration for this piece came from watching BBC’s latest nature series called ‘Dynsaties’ – I fell in love with painted wolves all over again.

I used an airbrush with gouache to create the soft, blurred, warm tones of the background in order to make the painted wolf pop right out of the page.
