"Portrait of a Wolf" is a clayboard piece that is 3.5" x 4.5", and it took approximately 6 hours to complete. This technique involves scratching and painting, in multiple layers, to achieve the hair-like result. The original is available for sale on my website at BigCatArt.com.
The reference photo for this painting was taken by the artist at the "Guzoo" in Three Hills, AB. This wolf was a wonderful subject.
Thanks to everyone who views and comments, the feedback is much appreciated!
