My artwork, 'On A Mission', is a pencil portrait and the wolves portrayed are part of a pack; they are on the move and trotting along in unison.
Whilst drawing this scene, I felt that the wolves were definitely on a mission and working together as a team: I loved the motion and the intent. Within a pack each wolf knows his/her position and behaves accordingly. It is this teamwork that has made wolves so successful as a species.
The study of animal behaviour has always fascinated me and I feel we can learn much from our fellow creatures.
My wolf drawing 'On A Mission' was commissioned for the book, 'A New Era for Wolves and People' by Dr. Marco Musiani.
