I Couldn't Resist

8 x8 

I just had to paint that sweet face! It's been a while since I've attempted a "portrait" of any kind so I wasn't surprised by how difficult it is to simply capture the character of the subject. And all that "yellow" fur! I discovered that Labs aren't really yellow. They are purple, blue, orange, gray, black, and pink!


  1. Such a sweet face! And I KNOW, when is yellow NOT yellow? When you're painting a dog!

  2. It is such a sweet face and I discovered dogs were not as easy as I thought....
