Coyote WIP

Working over an old one that was in the do-over pile here. It's from a photo reference that my Dad took in AZ, and I really liked the coyote - the photo doesn't show it but he's really nice shades of blue, lavender and yellow. Then I proceeded to totally ruin it with a choppy harsh colored background, and I fussed over it until I couldn't stand the painting anymore. I dug it out this week, though, and decided to try to salvage. I've run a very neutral wash over all the background, and am debating how much detail to put back in. This will definitely be a "less is more" painting. Sometimes those are the hardest.
