This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Lin supplied all the reference photos.
I wasn't too sure about painting such a dark character as the Angus but, thought it'll be a good challenge. The shadow of the ear across the shoulder really was what caught my interest.
This is oil on an acrylic toned canvas panel. First I covered the gessoed panel with a thinned alizarin crimson. Then I painted in the dark shadowy areas with black gesso. Below is what the start looked like. I like starting from a mid value and working my way up and down .
C&C welcome. Thanks for checking me out and commenting!
