Last stage of the drawing and it is ready to transfer. I will place it on Arches 300 lb warm watercolor paper. It's a bit difficult to photograph since the drawing is done with colerase on two transparent sheets. The elements look a bit complicated, but it will clear up with addition of color, line variation, value and whatever signature stye I move toward.
I'm working on three layers. Adding plant life to surround this coyote. Using colerase pencil on Canson transparent paper. Here is a progress shot. More elements to be added. The clean drawing is almost complete. I plan to use watercolor & gouache, ...& perhaps some experimenting with color pencil/mix media.
Another transparent paper placed over my initial rough drawing. This is the clean up stage. Red colerase & black prismacolor pencil. I am also mapping this guy out, as I plan to paint him in gouache. This is a wip. More elements to be added! I love canine. I had the pleasure to study a couple semesters with Marshall Vandruff, an awesome animal drawing maestro.
