For my big paintings, I often make studies. In the wolf piece, Miles to Go, I wanted a black wolf, which I never painted before. So before getting into the colors, I did several pencil sketches in different positions to study the expression of the black wolf. This one looked quite good, and I could not resist the temptation to make it into a very detailed pencil drawing.

The color of wolves’ fur can vary from a very light to black within the same pack. Black wolves ordinarily never appealed to me very much, until I did this drawing and discovered that they can look very “wolfish.”
