Beautiful Ben. What an absolute pleasure it was to paint this beauty! Commissioned by Dian from Ottawa to capture her beloved boy, I enjoyed painting every bit of this handsome Black Labrador Retriever.
I was lucky enough to receive picture perfect reference photos that truly captured just about every hair on sweet Ben's head in finite detail. Coupled with a request for a 20" x 20" canvas, I was able to add more detail to this painting and render a truer to life portrait.
From the wonderful and warm expression in his eyes to his soft tufts of black fur, I am extremely pleased with how this portrait has turned out. Dian will certainly enjoy Ben's portrait for years to come.
