RJ 16x20 Oil

As you can tell by RJ's face, he is an intense duck hunting Labradoodle. This picture was taken from Blind 2 at Hog Island Duck Club, Alpaugh, California on the last weekend in October 2012. One challenge in this painting was to ensure he looked like he just got out of the water. Turns out that is not so hard, as the Labradoodle hair clumps up like sheep's wool in bunches with deep, dark shadows.
