29/06: YELLOW LAB COMMISSION

I'm not getting much computer time just now - so much to organise before work begins on replacing our ceiling and removing/replacing spoiled floor and furniture ... 

This portrait was a secret commission - first wedding anniversary present for 'hubby' and he is very pleased with it I'm told.

Max - a gorgeous yellow lab who looks much younger than his 14 years!

Completed in pastels on Fisher 400 sanded paper

Thanks Kathryn. Labs have wonderful eyes don't they?

Nice one Sue, great face, typical Lab. I like the fade out towards his hind quarters, very effective.

Jo said...

Those really are incredible eyes Sue. I feel for you with the renovations. Pity you can't go back to the Canaries and let them get on with it.

You have a knack of making animals look almost human.
