Boodah – The Australian Cattle Dog, acrylics on canvas, 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!

The client wanted a simple background and she chose this light airy blue one. I feel like it really suits Boodah’s colouring. She also wanted me to include the red markings on his chest.

The original pictures were a bit challenging to work with, but I was able to “Frankenstein” a few together from Boodah’s earlier years.

These are the two pictures that I worked from:

This is the quick ” Frankenstein sketch” that I made, using an image editor:

I’m glad that I was able to fit in one commission before the holidays. I won’t be able to paint for a bit because we are going away for a few weeks.

I can’t wait to be back already to paint some more!

À bientôt!
