Wolf - work in progress
I always say that inspiration comes from many sources. I agreed to send some cards across the miles, "just because". Unusually I had a lot of men take me up on this offer which I can honestly say I found quite surprising. I never think of guys appreciating a card in the post as much as females, so it just shows how much I had inadvertantly stereotyped. Far more males took part in this than females. Anyway I digress............one of the guys told me that he liked wolves and I couldn't find a decent picture that wasn't subject to copyright. So I am painting one!
So that I can also use it for Christmas cards, I decided to give it an icy background. As Tina was interested in the effect when I was talking about it the other day, here is a close up so you can see it more clearly.
The paper does need to be quite wet and you simply add rock salt to your paint mix. As Teen says, it would also make an interesting backing to a card.
Happy Saturday :D
