Wild dog pup 12" x 12" pencil

My pencil study of a wild dog pup is  now completed and is the first of the images produced as a result of encounters in Botswana in September this year.i wanted to record something quickly whilst the memory of the encounter with the wild dogs was fresh in my mind but a larger scale image,either in graphite or oils or both,will be completed at some point.he pups were left by the adult dogs whilst they went on a hunt and we observed the youngsters resting and dozing in the shade of a large tree for a couple of hours until eventually the rest of the pack turned up and after a frenzied greeting food was regurgitated for the pups before they all set of on an evening hunt.
