In The Forest Shadows

This painting was a test for myself to see if I could paint an image using predominantly a sketch brush, with only other brushes used for background colour blocking. I've been dependent on the lasso tool for a long time, to form bold shapes within my work, so this was to see if I could do something similar with a sketch pencil brush. I also tried to create better values within the painting which you can see in the black and white image - hopefully your eye is drawn around the sweep of the foliage to the wolf in the centre.
