Mum's Animal Portraits.

Mum is a pet portrait artist and she took the children to Wildwood Animal Park in Kent last weekend, which is famous locally for its pack of wolves. It inspired her to find a lovely photo of two wolves on the web (her own photos didn't come out so well) and draw them in pastel. Here's the link to the original photo...

Melissa Crow used both pastel sticks and pastel pencils. She said, 'It's not perfect, but I'm getting better and what could be a better subject to practice animals on than these beautiful wolves.'
Here's a link to mum's website where you can see more of her work and pet portrait commissions.

For anyone interested in Wildwood Animal Park, here's a link to their website....
