Boodah - The Australian Cattle Dog



Boodah - The Australian Cattle Dog,*acrylics, 11" x 14"

A new commissioned piece. Boodah is a lovely Australian cattle dog from Calgary. This dog was actually pretty fun to paint, especially the eyes and nose. And I just love that dog's big ears!

But the salt and pepper fur really gave me a hard time, wowee! And the reference photos were not very good, I had to "Frankenstein" a few together to make it work and figure out the eyes behind the white out flash blur.

The client is super happy, which is what really counts at the end of the day!
