This beautiful boy is a black Lab named Pac. I was contacted by a previous client, his “mom”, to create a new painting as a gift. Pac is an outdoor dog who goes hunting with his human, so placing him in his environment was important. Only problem was, the photos we have of him are not showing a particularly nice background. So I researched photos and found a shot that looks similar to the area he lives in.
This painting also needed to be the same size and harmonize with the previous one I did for this client, of a yellow Lab named Tara. I kept the size of the dog’s head in similar scale but used cool colors rather than warm ones as you can see in the previous painting.
