When sharing WIPs of this painting on my social networks, I ran into a rough patch where I wasn't feeling confident in the direction it was going since I was trying a new pallet and approach to laying down color. Thank you everyone who encouraged me to see this through. The result isn't as bad as I thought it would be! 

Prints are available on Etsy and Redbubble. The original has already sold.

I love the effect on the sky and the animal's fur, its as if a layer with digital program was added!

Thanks!

Nope! All of it is traditional ^^ I actually started tea staining as a way to mimic texture overlays in Photoshop. It was my favorite thing as a digital artist (years ago), and after finding a way to get a similar result traditionally, I never went back lol
