Wolf and us: an original wildlife painting

This is one of my last traditional paintings. It’s an original illustration about animals, humans, Nature and our connection.

The main character here is an Italian wolf. I painted with Talens gouache on Fabriano Artistico 300 g cotton paper. Size is about 20 x 30 cm.

Original and prints are on sale in my Etsy shop: link to prints in the shop
