"On the Prowl", a portrait of a raccoon, oil on linen, 14"x18". I just completed what I consider to be my first wildlife painting. It's based on an iPhone photo I took at the Wolf Centre
in Haliburton Forest last summer. They have a museum with a wildlife exhibit. I first created a quick monochrome study and then gradually painted over it in colour using basic skin pigments left from afternoons of painting humans.
