Hi This is 12x16 on canvas and was painted from a photo as a commission for a friend. He has a black lab too which is next in line. Don't do many pets and found the dog very challenging. Used a direct color in the contour drawing approach over a very light sepia toned canvas. Thanks for looking.

I don't know much about the technique you used, but I think the result is very effective. You've got the alertness down and the dog's expression is very real. The only nit I would pick is that the tail looks a bit undifferentiated -- sort of a blob. It would help if you could do something to make it look more realistic for a Golden Retriever's tail.

Not being an animal painter myself I'm so impressed with what you've done here. I must check out your approach! Very good.

Very good animal portrait. Still, I would work more values on the wood.
