Maned Wolf

I decided to try out a lighter weight paper 200gsm to practice on rather than the usual 300gsm, and surprisingly the paper buckling which I expected to be more dramatic — isn’t! I threw a lot of water at this piece but the paper stays relatively flat thankfully.

I love the colour orange so this omnivorous, leggy beast was perfect subject matter for me to paint, he has flecks of white ink in his ears and salt ground into his coat for texture. Maned wolves are found in South America and despite its name is neither a fox nor wolf.
