Vagabond (Coyote; Mesopredator Series)

To prove I'm not just a lurker and actually do paint... here's an acrylic piece from a class I took with Georgia animal artist Will Eskridge!

I don't usually do impressionistic type work, my tendency is photorealism, but it was pretty fun to learn to be a bit more loose about everything. Would say about 90% of this was done using only cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, yellow ochre (a few cad red bits here and there). Working with a limited palette was also a good learning experience.

Hopefully this guy is part of a bigger series of mesopredators in transit across landscapes. This accidentally became a "series" because I did another of a raccoon with a similar composition... does two count as a series?

Very moody.

I think mesopredators in transit across a landscape is an interesting series. Possibly a raccoon in a city? Bear in a garbage can? The conflict between wildlife and the ever-encroaching human expansion? That's another way to go.

That's a beauty. The colors are wonderful and it has a great sense of movement.

Re: Vagabond (Coyote; Mesopredator Series)

The posture and movement of the coyote are things that really set it apart from other canids to me, and you've got it perfect.
And the bit of warm color in the fur makes him/her feel very close.
I really like this. I'm surprised my dogs aren't barking to warn me it's nearby.
