Link (almost done)

LinkyI have to say that the complexity of Link’s coat intimidated me.  As an Australian Cattle Dog, there are so many hairs of different colors all mottled in there together, that I just stared at the photo for a while.  This is a perfect exercise of using oils to layer.  And layer, and layer, and layer…

Once the black dries a bit, I can finish up with the longer and tuftier hairs in and under the ears, on the side of the cheek, etc.
