Old man Emu

Painted on a 24" x 30" canvas, using Createx Wicked acrylics.
The background was airbrushed, the emu was all conventional brushe rendered.
The painting will be entered in the Lachlan Regional Art Awards in September.
It was a challenging subject to paint, but I'm pretty happy with the outcome.
You can view various progressive updates of this paiting in the works in progress section.

Wonderful detail perhaps the judges are envious of it . My cousin once entered a a competition with a fantastic birds of prey painting and someone won it with a painting of a misshapen bowl of fruit with  a few splatters of  paint,  so it happens everywhere good luck.. it works out ok for me as I'm not so good at detail
