Walking Wolf

The final two phases of the painting begun here.

A walking wolf - incomplete imageI hate this stage. The goal is to add some texture, hopefully a little of which will remain and add depth to the final product. Sometimes it works beautifully, sometimes I manage to sort of smear it out of existence in the final blending. I’ve almost never actually ruined a painting this way…

But I’m always certain that I did when I look at it! Blech.

Normally I wouldn’t show off this phase, but I’ve shown off every other stage of this painting, so here you go. Witness my sad shame.

This one earned a spot in my Etsy shop, I think!
