A commissioned portrait of a yellow labrador retriever. Sporting breeds are a delight to paint. The intensity of their gaze adds focal interest for me when choosing the perfect head shot. I photographed Champ for his portrait. There is great beauty in painting hunting dogs in action, that said, Champ had suffered severe injuries to one of his front legs so it was a joint decision between the owner and I to do a head and chest portrait.
