howling…on a midsummer night

Wolves howl to assemble the pack (usually before and after hunts), to pass on an alarm (particularly at a den site), to locate each other during a storm or unfamiliar territory and to communicate across great distances. Could these wolves be howling at the antics of a midsummer night?

This week's illustration friday's topic is "Midsummer Night" suggested by Emily Dimov-Gottshall ( "Why this is very midsummer madness" - William Shakespeare


  1. Great atmosphere in this one..I like the trees and silhouettes.

  2. Beautiful haunting illo. Love your use of negative space and the blue gray palette for the forest.

  3. Thank you for all of your nice comments. Much appreciated
    Cheers Sandra
