I started with a reference photograph from the Wet Canvas reference library of one wolf which was a rather sad depiction of him laying in a dusty compound at a zoo. Using ideas from many more photographs from Paint My Photo, I have sketched in another two wolves to my composition and set about creating a panoramic scene for them to feature in. I am making the background and foreground up as I go along, so at this point I can't say how it's going to finish up.
The above represents 3 sessions of work totalling about 15 hours and I estimate I'm about half way through. What with a busy weekend of sport ahead (rugby and the Australian Grand Prix) to distract me, I can't see a lot more progress being made until early next week.
