My artwork, ‘Feeding Young Cub’, is a pencil portrait. In my drawing the mother wolf is regurgitating her food for her pup. Cubs pester, lick and fuss at the mothers muzzle in order to encourage her to share the remains of her kill.
The study of animal behaviour has always fascinated me and the study of wolf interaction, especially with their youngsters is also of great interest to me. I thoroughly enjoyed portraying my artwork, ‘Feeding Young Cub’.
My wolf drawing was produced for the book, ‘A New Era for Wolves and People’ by Dr. Marco Musiani.
