Black and White Labs

This is a portrait of our 2 Labradors. They were about 6 and 7 years old at the time of the reference photograph. The Yellow lab passed away this year. The paper is 300 lbs Arches cp and the paints are Windsor Newton professional grade. This was done on a 1/8 sheet. My first painting of something alive. Comments expected.

You captured the expressions & the scene beautifully.

So sorry for the loss.

Re: Black and White Labs

I think your photo of the painting doesn't do justice to the painting. From what I can see, it looks like a great job of capturing both dogs.
I am sorry to hear one has passed.
Regards,
Greg.

Re: Black and White Labs

Fantastic. In the reference, the flowers are more important. In your painting, you made the dogs the star, as it should be. Well done
