Oil on masonite board (16"x12") 2000. Raleigh NC.

Wanted to try my hand at the masonite board. I really liked working on the smooth surface. Although I would like to be in a situation where I can devote a big chunk of time because it takes a lot of time to prime the board, unlike canvas where I can quickly brush some linseed oil and start working. I need to do the whiskers and add some grass and also need to finalize the mouth to make it more three dimensional.
