A painting of a Dingo (Ausrtalian wild dog)... continued

It has been a long process, getting this painting rendered. I not using any airbrushing on this one. it's all hand done, using only three red sable brushes - a #2 Filbert - a #0 Liner and a #5/0 Liner.

The painting is on a 20" x 24" canvas.

All the fur is being applied one hair at a time...it's quite a task.

It's nearing completion..over 50 hours of work on it so far.

I made a couple of mistakes here and there...it happens, when you let your imagination override your photo references.

I will add the last photo I had in my previous WIP of it...the rest are updates...

The next update, will be the finished picture..
