I have so many "to-do's" on my plate but I'm taking a few days to play and work on this painting. ( I do have the to-do's in stages though). When I first saw the photo of these two Labs I had to paint it. They live in Scotland and do promo work for the Scotland Lab rescue. The hunters were out that day and at the crack of the rifle they both turned.
As the days go by I'll post the continuing process.
I studied drawing 24/7 when I attended art school so now I draw every line from sight. (Yes there are cheating techniques when in a hurry) but I tend to stay with what I know. You will see scrub marks where I changed a line or two or more. The yellow Lab just wants to take over the canvas. :-) I will glaze his color on after my base drys. Tomorrow I will start the black Lab highlights.
The size is 28" x 22" oil on stretched canvas. It will be for purchase when finished and half the price will go to the Scotland Lab Rescue.
Thanks for coming by!
