Work on the sky and distant mountains starts first.
Starting on the valley. Grass, trees, and a suggestion of fields of spring flowers.
More valley work. Trees closer in. And a river below.
Work begins on the ledge the wolves are standing on. Starting to block in the wolves too. River almost finished.
All of the background is done now, as well as most of the foreground ledge, covered in grass and flowers.
Next comes finishing up the wolves themselves. This painting should be done next week. So check back then to see the finished product!
