Burning the Night - Complete by Nicole-Marie-Walker Burning the Night - Complete by Nicole-Marie-Walker
Tumblr | Etsy | Facebook | Flickr | Pinterest

Size: 9.5 x 13.5 inches
Medium: Watercolors with touch-ups in acrylic and white gel pen.
Surface : Aqvarelle Arches 140lb hot pressed watercolor block.

I'm pretty happy with the way this came out. The biggest challenge for me was actually the background. I have a hard time relinquishing control and letting the paints just do their own thing. I love the way the background came out though.

What a amazing work! I love the soft colors and the way fur and fire looks like.
The background is still perfect, too. All together a breathtaking picture.

This is so amazing for words to even describe, I really love every single detail and couldn't take my eyes off the background and the moon which feels like a sun from the fire. I love the way you did the watercolor around that. Fantastic piece.

Thanks so much for the input! Kind comments always make me feel like I'm doing things right.

P.S. I FREAKING love your icon. Made me laugh like an idiot once I realized what it was.

Thanks! When I was working out the colors I knew I wanted the majority of the painting to be toned down and cool, with bright orange and red for the wolf and flames. I wanted him to be "burning the night!" ;D

You're welcome. The title really works with what you were going for.

As usual, you have a interesting aesthetic to your work. Different from people I've seen, it's a honor to watch you.
