Painting for Nationals // 3D Target Backdrops

Our club, Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club, is hosting this year's Canadian Indoor 3D Championships.  Steve and I have been volunteering to help organize and plan the event.  In preparation for the event courses - I painted some backgrounds for the 3D target animals that will be used on the courses!  I really enjoy painting and it was fun to be able to paint a few backdrops in our garage!

Here's a few photos of the process that I took here and there when I was painting (Check back after Nationals - I'll add in final photos from the boards on the actual course into this post after the Championships are done!)

First background I tackled was one for the HUGE Rinehart Moose target... It took up three OSB boards...

Painted the 3 panel wide Moose background in my garage!
Here's the final background behind the Moose target at Nationals!
 Next is the background for the Rinehart Caribou target!  This one was 2 panels wide and didn't really take that much time to finish! :)

The Leopard background was super easy to paint... just did a bunch of grass!
