Coyote - the drawing
I've decided to do the larger version of the coyote study that I sketched a few days ago. This is on a half sheet of mouse grey mi-tientes paper - the smooth side. I'm using pastels for a change - a combination of sticks for initial broad values and pencils for detail.
As usual, I start with the eyes. If the gaze looks right, the rest will generally fall into place around it. I know I should be disciplined and work left to right for this, but I'm all over the place, adding shape and colour as it suits me. It will all work out in the end provided I keep remembering to use my hand shield.
