Stillness - wolf in snow

11x15 watercolor painted today on Kilimanjaro 140 lb cold press paper with Daniel Smith paints:  Ultramarine blue, alizarin crimson, raw sienna, burnt sienna, quinacridone burnt orange, sepia, carbazole violet, quinacridone gold. Background trees are all negatively painted. Total time 2 hours. I made up the snow and trees and the wolf photo is courtesy WetCanvas! Weekend Drawing Event Sept. 14-16, host Jean of Canada.  Her photo was a wolf in warmer weather so I changed the season.

Es una muy bonita estampa invernal, para las calores que por estas latitudes andamos pasando aun.
Mis felicitaciones por la obra.
