thanks for the comments. it was done almost entirely with 2 colors, ultamarine blue and burnt sienna (i've done a lot of western type paintings with just these 2 colors.) the dog was done almost exclusively with a liner brush. Mika was owned by the 'girl friday' of our horse vet, she went to doggy heaven a few years ago, i was laying down on the concrete of his treatment room to take the reference photos.
