Stalking wolf painting update: those furry ears!

It seems I am stalling at finishing the ears of my wolf...perhaps that is because I am having some difficulty with them.
The main reason is because the original reference image had the ears folded back and I did not want to portray them that way on my painting as I felt it made the wolf look too mean. So I hunted the reference library for "better" forward facing wolf ears to use as a guide. 
You may notice the ears are now slightly smaller and shaped differently from my original outline. Let's hope this works! 
My second excuse is I am having trouble getting focused on painting during this busy holiday season. Too many things to do in so little time but I do hope to finish him before the new year!!


  1. It looks wonderful Colette!!! I understand how busy one gets during the Holiday's.... I will be posting my last one until after the Holday's....I'm overwhelmed as well!!!

  2. Wishing you all the best this Holiday Season Hilda! looking forward to seeing your next posting!
