Home Field Advantage - Coyote by Carl Brenders

For one or another reason, that smaller member of the wild dog family, the coyote, to me looks like a very interesting creature. If the wolf survived all the human attempts to exterminate him, the coyote did even better. Because he is such an opportunist, he extended his range over almost all of the U.S. Most wild animals on this continent saw their habitats decline; the coyote saw his grow. He adapts to any situation ó even the garbage cans of people help him to survive and increase his numbers.

Seeing a coyote at a garbage dump is not the nicest way to see them, but spotting them in a wild natural habitat is always a treat. The best place to see a lot of them is probably Yellowstone Park in Wyoming. They are not shy at all up there and easy to study. It is delightful to see one hunt for mice. Many times, on my hiking trips, I had that wonderful opportunity. Sometimes one sees a coyote catching six or seven mice in twenty minutesí time. My presence and the sound of my camera never bothered them. From one generation to the other, they learned that people in that paradise are not dangerous at all. But they donít let you come up really close. So, it is nice for a wildlife artist to imagine myself close to this wild opportunist and enjoy the nice details on his face and on his beautiful fur.

I did some experimenting with backlight this time, which makes this painting different than my other work. My model was almost an adult, but still young, and the challenge of this painting was to capture the inexperienced, innocent look of a youngster.
