Wow! I want to paint like you. I have tried to paint the foreground grass before using a technique for John Seery-Lester's book, It looks like you nailed it! It has depth and natural shapes that are so real. I like the placement of the wolf at the angle so we see more of the luscious fur. I know it might be considered insulting to some people, but I mean in as the highest complement- It is so real it looks like a photo at the Algonquin wolf sanctuary in Ontario.
Thank you for the comments. Not insulted at all. I got a lot out of Seery-Lester's book when I started painting. I still use a similar technique for my grass. All the best to you with your painting! Joe
