ReDo Stage 4 East Fork Wolf Painting

. eastforkwolfredo4

Here is the re-worked painting with the new wolf image.  The mountains and sky have been grayed back, the water behind the wolf lightened to silhouette the animal.  I’m going to wait a few days and digest these changes before I declare the painting finished.  I’ll turn it upside down and evaluate how the composition is working, and possibly lighten the darkest values on the animals fur.  I’m going to take my time with this one.  Some paintings just flow off the brush with minimal effort, others like this one take blood, sweat and tears.  I enjoy every aspect of painting, each one is unique unto itself and holds a little place in my heart.

  1. It’s looking really good, Gail. I love the colour and texture in your foreground too.

  2. Thanks, it is nearly finished, I am three weeks past the deadline. Oh well…..

    I remember that you said a moose had appeared then disappeared several times in “Mile 60 Richardson” years ago. That painting must have caused you the same angst as the current one.

  4. Good memory, John. Yes….it is the same. Only this time the wolf stays!

  5. Yes, John, good memory. Only this time the wolf stays!
