Gray (Timber) Wolf Painting in pastel SOLD!

After doing a few more touch ups this morning, I finally call this painting done! I haven't created a large painting of this size for a while because they take so much time to complete. Although, some of you might remember I did start this piece early last year, I had to put it aside to concentrate on more pressing work. One of my New Year's resolution was to finish this piece before starting any new paintings.

I hope you enjoyed watching it progress, albeit, rather slowly, I admit. I hope I haven't bored any of you with my many updates as I felt at times it would never progress to the final stage!

So here is my first painting of 2014!
