This was a pastel idea I was working on 10 years ago. Just came across it recently, and was thinking of working on it again, maybe a large scale oil or acrylic. I took the photos of these arctic wolves from a zoo in Moncton Ca and new I would be painting and drawing them.
About 15 to 20 years ago, I had been studying under a local New Bedford artist. He gave me a series of photos to work from, some well known pictures he pulled from magazines i guess. These were all done for practice, but I these are all I have left. Now I need to finish some new projects.
This is something I was just able to scan in. I completed this back in the mid 90's, the moose image was taken from a magazine article. I took photos with a 35mm camera to show some progression, I was really into pastels at that time. From doing this piece, I learned to use toned paper instead of toning a 16x20 gray board.
