Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Joel was the great host. Thanks for the terrific reference photos.
I chose to paint this stately dog because the coat is fascinating with all that flowing fur. I had fun laying in the impasto strokes selectively. The impasto was done with a loaded brush....Yes the brush was loaded, not me! No palette knife was used...and no doggies were harmed in the making of this painting...
Originally, I believed this was a Russian Wolfhound, and said so in my title. I corrected the title when Kathryn Ragan of Studio At The Farm came to my rescue and pointed out that it's actually an Afghan Hound. Thank you Kathryn! Get over to her fine blog and check out the great demo she did on a super painting of geese!
Thanks for looking!
