Timber Wolves have been on my ‘to-do’ list for some time. As usual, however, I wanted to wait until I found a composition that suited my distinctive style. I think I found it with Silent Shadow.

I also wanted to include something of the ‘Gestalt’ technique used previously in my ‘Midnight Feast’ study of a Chimpanzee. For those that don’t know, ‘Gestalt’ is a technique that uses shadow to give a sense of the unseen parts of a subject.
I’m very happy with the outcome here in Silent Shadow. I’m also happy with the dash of silver leaf applied at the LHS edge of the canvas. I think it adds textural contrast and lifts what’s otherwise an empty space.
