Sketchbook Tuesday



 more wolf sketches

"We are drawn to wolves because no other animal is so like us. . . Of all the rest of creation, wolves reflect our own images most dramatically, most realistically, and most intensely."
Peter Steinhardt, The Company of Wolves

  2. Love these, Crystal. You are amazing, and I always enjoy seeing your work. I like to fantasize that I could be a wolf if I weren't human. They are mysterious and fierce! (So not the way I am.)

  3. I was in a huge art gallery over the weekend and saw an amazing wolf painting - it made me excited to see how yours turns out. Your sketches have great potential.

  7. This post reminds me of ET Seton. I'll email you a link to an awesome PBS documentary on him and his experience with wolves. Maybe you'd like to watch it. :)

  8. It always amazes me how you can capture such intense expession in what is purely a sketch. Your wolf series is really nice. Will you be painting them too? :0)

  12. Thank you very much you guys!! It's always brings a smile to my face when I read your kind comments :)

    And, for those of you who asked, I am getting ready to start a wolf painting. But these are just studies, for practice, so that I can be more familiar with wolves when I start painting them. :):):)

    And I just love drawing them. The second part of my high school art portfolio was all about wolves. It was fun :)

  13. You are done needing to study. The two wolves together is outstanding. About how long do you spend on each sketch?
