coyote emerging from den

Not thrilled with the result but I had a lot of fun doing it (which is why I do art).
watercolour & wax pencil on 12"x12" 140lb coldpress
suggestions welcome so I can improve

Re: coyote emerging from den

Yvonne, as usual you have some excellent textures in this painting. I just feel that the tones are too similar throughout the work apart from the cave like area from which the coyote is emerging. He is the central point of the painting and the area around him should perhaps be much lighter or much darker than his coat so that he stands out a little more.

Good work. I just love the texture in that foreground rock! Agree that the coyote needs to stand out a bit more.

Thank you all very much!
I haven't felt like working on this thing again but when I do I'll post it.
All great suggestions.

I like the action in this! He is on his way to do his daily prowl.

Re: coyote emerging from den

Good action is right!
I wouldn't change the coyote at all: The blurriness of the critter shows speed and some kind of intent, whether protection or food.
I would define the lights and shadows, show more structure of the area.
Then, if needed or wanted, do more with the critter.

Re: coyote emerging from den

Thanks again people. Here is my new version. Lighting wasn't the best.
