I'm starting a new set of paintings of two Labradors. They are both hunters, with Indy, the black lab, specializing in geese, and Skye, the yellow lab, trained to hunt pheasants. So, the client wants a setting to match each dog's personality and hunting ground.
Initial sketches from provided photos
Indy had some great shots in the snow, so I wanted to use that as a contrast against her black fur. Skye looks great in the grassy fields. I'll continue onto real sketches as soon as I get the go ahead!
