Silver Eyed Coyote



This was suppooooosed to just be a quick painting in order to get rid of the leftover paint on my palette. I started without any kind of pencil sketch and did a very rough drawing in paint, filling in the shapes directly afterward. Same color palette as the last. It's amazing to me how something can look washed out and grey and then a single thin glaze will make it glow with color. 

I used reference roughly from a morguefile photo but it's not terribly true to the original. I also used a fan brush to soften up the fur, which I usually steer away from because it's so easy to just make a puffball and fur is such rich ground for visually interesting, albiet not totally realistic, shapes.
