Finished Painting of a Black Labrador Retriever
This is the finished custom pet portrait of Huck, a Black Labrador Retriever. I’ve heard many other artists talk about the difficulties in painting a black animal–but I enjoy it. It’s like using light to carve out a shape. I painted all of Huck in very cool tones mostly ultramarine blue and black except for his warm sherry colored eyes.
This painting was a thoughtful gift. If you are interested in giving someone (or even yourself) the gift of a pet portrait for the holidays–please get in touch by visiting my website at https://www.hopelaneart.com or by messaging me here. I offer gift certificates too.
I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much lately as I’ve been caught up in moving and renovating. But as things are starting to settle down, I’m delighted to get back to keeping in touch.
Beautiful as always
He looks real!!! Amazing
