Ash is a great example of why people love labs. He is loving, loyal, handsome and playful. He would fetch toys out of the water all day long. Hip replacement has not slowed him down too much.
Isn't this a great pose? He was waiting on the deck for us to come outside and play.
This is painted on a 16 x 20" gallery wrap canvas.
Ash and your painting have melted my heart! Love the layers of colors I see peeking through his coat; outstanding, Carol!ReplyDelete
Ash might just be a favorite. I really think he looks so wise- his face is amazing! Wonderful job and they are lucky neighbors to have you:)ReplyDelete
Ash is definitely a favorite - yes, great pose. Love the negative space and how you treated it Carol. And you know I'm drawn to those saturated colors! Well done friend!ReplyDelete
What an adorable face! Who could not love this dog?ReplyDelete
I love the colors you used in his coat, Carol. Really well done.
I love all your work but this is just amazing! Love it so much!ReplyDelete
I like the regal yet modern look here ,great job.ReplyDelete
What a great dog!! Reminds me of my Sky, who passed away a year ago. This is a great painting and the color is so nice!ReplyDelete
This portrait of Ash is a real winner, great pose mixed with just the right colors and brushstrokes. You'll just have to forget about the mailbox since they provided you with the perfect model for this painting!!ReplyDelete
This is a beautiful painting Carol! I love the colors. It was great meeting you at Fairhope and I hope the show was a success.ReplyDelete
You've so beautifully captured the perfect Lab head in Ash's portrait. He is a gorgeous boy and how could you all not run right out to play with him with that adoring look on his face?ReplyDelete
He is perfectly posed...are you sure you didn't help him? Just kidding, I have seen that same alert look on many doggie faces, waiting to see if you are thinking what they think you are thinking.ReplyDelete
Wow - what a portrait! I reiterate all the previous comments. Looking at this painting, you feel like you KNOW this handsome fellow.ReplyDelete
Love Ash and love the painting. What a great pose and you captured his personality perfectly.ReplyDelete
Love the shades of blue! Great Job!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
You captured this really well, I know that look! We just put a black lab mix down, she was very sick. We have 2 others, but there is still a big space missing in our lives. I am inspired now to paint her, soon!ReplyDelete
This is wonderful! Having been a sort of co-owner once of a black lab I am partial to them.ReplyDelete
