'Shadow Falling' is a graphite pencil drawing on Arches CP watercolour paper. A close up portrait of a timber wolf. I have been wanting to create a portrait like this for ages but couldn't find the right reference photo. Then I thought of a method I could use which was to take a photograph, crop it in two, discard one half and then flip the other before joining it back together all in photoshop. I ended upwith a perfectly symmetrical face which I used for reference for this drawing. With the addition of some dramatic lighting I achieved just what I was hoping for, a very striking and haunting portrait which draws the viewer right in. Quite small at just 10.25 x 9.5 inches it is presented in a white mount within a silk finished charcoal black frame with bright silver sight edge to a total size of approximately 18.75 x 18 inches, ready to hang.
