The Wolf and the Crane by bumble-boo The Wolf and the Crane by bumble-boo
Now available in my Etsy shop as a print!

6x6" Arches 300lb Watercolour and Gouache

"A WOLF, having a bone stuck in his throat, hired a Crane, for a large sum, to put her head into his throat and draw out the bone. When the Crane had extracted the bone, and demanded the promised payment, the Wolf, grinning and grinding his teeth, exclaimed: "Why, you have surely already a sufficient recompense, in having been permitted to draw out your head in safety from the mouth and jaws of a wolf."

Thanks a lot!! No, I haven't done that one! I want to do some more Aesop's Fables though, so maybe I will! I did 9 stories for my thesis. :)

I really like how you summarize the whole story in just one image. The composition and the colors are great :D!
I have never heard this story before, but it makes a lots of sense, you cannot expect greater good from helping someone that doesn't usually make good deeds.

Yeah, I believe it was in a little book of russian stories, if i remember well... I can almost see the drawings in the book. And I believe the story was written by Tolstoi, and adapted for kids. Even though the story belongs to Aesop... Or if it wasn't Tolstoi, it was another russian author. I think I still have that book, back in my hometown.

Oh yes, those were lovely. I remember the illustrations and all. And I remember that I wanted to do that, to draw illustrations for books. Those were beautiful little pieces of art.
