I have decided to start posting new portraits on my blog again, as not everyone is on Facebook or Google Plus. So meet ‘Max’, a lovely Black Labrador whose owners describe him as a gentle giant. Most dog portraits are commissioned in pastels so it’s always great fun when I get to draw one in charcoal. Max’s portrait was commissioned as a birthday present for his ‘Dad’. Apparently, he loves it! 🙂
Labradors are always fun to draw and paint, I have done quite a few Lab portraits over the years, mostly in pastels. After all, Labrador Retrievers are the nation’s favourite dog breed! There are currently five Labrador portraits in my dog portrait gallery – two of black Labs (Motty and Bella), two of yellow Labs (Summer and Biene) and one of a chocolate Lab (Missy).
If you are interested in a portrait of your Labrador or any other dog or pet, don’t hesitate to contact me.
