Medium: Graphite pencils on Vellum Image Size: 13 x 16 inches Framed Size: 20 x 23 inches
'Moon Shadows' is an original graphite pencil drawing on vellum. Highly detailed, it shows a pair of young white wolves on some rocks, caught in moonlight. I began with a reference photo of the cubs, but really enjoyed using my imagination to put them into a natural setting and build a simple, unfussy background. The dark sky brings the subjects to the fore and allows me to portray the tendrils of their hot breath escaping into the stillness of the night.
Measuring approximately 13 x 16 inches, this drawing is presented in a white mount within a distressed silver gilt frame to a total size of about 20 x 23 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
