Trust the Wolves sketch.
A preview of a painting I'm working on. It's the hardest thing in the world to find time for personal projects right now, but I feel like this one will really be worth it. At the bottom is a wolf I had cut out of my sketchbook. I slapped on a thick layer of oil pastel on top of an acrylic underpainting and carved into it with a needle for my line work. I really like the effect and I'd like to use it, but the texture wouldn't be right for this particular piece. She wanted more of a "gauzy" watercolor feel, and I am just as happy to play with that as I am with this scratch art.
