I think the above definition sums up the wolves plight fairly well. With their loss of habitat coupled with the over hunting of their natural prey, it's unsurprising that they are finding themselves in desperate situations as they are forced to prey on cattle and domestic animals to survive. I shudder every time I read of another atrocity carried out by man on these magnificent wild creatures.
This drawing turned into a bit of an epic and, as I've not been at full capacity of late, has taken quite a while to complete but I'm happy with the result. I have a bit of framing to catch up on now, then it's back to watercolour I think.....I have several ideas for new paintings.
