I am a huge dog lover of all types but Labs are certainly close to my heart as I have owned 3 of them. (2 blacks and a yellow)
Full of energy, trust and certainly unconditional love.
This yellow lab looks to have full concentration as it focuses on whatever has caught it's attention.

Soft pastel on canson mi-teintes touch paper. Thanks in advance for any comments. :)

What a sweetie. You’ve captured lots of character. I love his colour. I had a chocolate lab for many years.

Awwwwww! Beautiful, sensitive Lab portrait! And yes Labs are very special, having owned several in my life....they are the ultimate dog breed...hugely loyal, affectionate, and will fit into any lifestyle or living area, and will go with their owner anywhere and wait patiently all day for their owners to come home, greeting them with a huge wag of their wonderful tail! They make life full of meaning. What better dog could you get! :clap: :heart:
