I have been reworking the fur on this wolf. I wasn’t too satisfied with it so I used a soft paintbrush and removed some of the pastel. Then I added more darks and then the lights. I also used a pastel pencil on the whitest wispy hairs. I like the way it turned out. I am now working on the reflection. I can tell that it needs to be much darker than the positive image of the wolf.so that the wolf will stand out.
I also want to make the blue in the reflection darker as well. I hope to finish soon and have this piece ready to enter an upcoming show in the spring.
