Celtic Inspiration: “The Wolf”

I’m so impressed with myself at the moment. I fell in love with Celtic art (specifically from the Britain/Ireland area) but my first few attempts at the intricate knotwork were dismal. Abysmal. I didn’t keep them.

But I’ve got a bit more drawing experience under my belt so I decided to start practicing again. And it wasn’t half bad. And I attempted a stylized wolf. And I could tell it was a wolf! So this project was born.

An in-progress shot I posted to Instagram.

Inking in the knotwork. This color combo reminded me of moonlight, which is exactly the feeling I was trying to evoke.

And the entire thing! I love it, I love the pictures I took.

And in a frame.

So this piece is in our store, The Wordsremember Shop! It’s 5×7, inked with Micron pens and an oil-based paint marker on 140-lb, acid-free paper.

I’ve got it listed at $65 but if there was interest I’d be very willing to make prints, which would be more in the $20ish range. I’ve got Giclee prints of the Azmayan on order; if I like the result I might go ahead and make prints of this one available just because.

And if you’re interested in a print of the Azmayan let me know (wordsandwares@gmail.com)! They should be here soon.

Materials Used (affiliate links included! I need to keep myself supplied with supplies;):
