On the horizon

Coloured pencil on canvas panel (2010)

Why use coloured pencil on canvas? The paints were all the way upstairs while the pencils were immediately at hand. Working with coloured pencil is interesting for two reasons: the fine detail capable of a sharp pencil is second to none, and erasers only go so far. I really like the texture of the fur and that the colours in the wolf are subdued, standing out in my body of work. What could it be that has this creature’s rapt attention?
