I’ve been wanting to paint another animal portrait for some time now. Whilst looking for a subject that is not only challenging but interesting too, I came across this striking image. The Coyote in all his glory with subtle muted tones and cool flecks highlighted in his long and coarse fur. Standing alert sniffing out his surroundings, the reddish tinges in his ears adding a soft warm glow. This painting has so many interesting elements, I’m sure you’ll find it extremely rewarding to complete.
