Australian Shepherd

The photo reference for this one was a commission I did years ago in watercolor. It was difficult for me to paint the merl coat in watercolor with out making mud but it works great in oil. I think merl is the term for the spotted coat. I am told that these dogs make great pets, highly intelligent.

  2. Hey, how'd I miss this one! He's cute!!
