Curtly - Labrador Dog Portrait painting by Andrew Hunt
(Acrylic on board) An all-black coat can be quite a challenge to paint, especially when in reality it is in fact, many shades of grey. Fortunately, I was able to spend time Curtly and his owners, and took plenty of reference photos, in a variety of lighting conditions The client sent me the following comments after receiving the finished painting: "We asked Andrew to paint our nine year old Labrador for my wife’s 50th birthday. The whole commissioning process was easy and enjoyable, including a visit to Andrew’s studio for an initial photo shoot and selecting the composition for the portrait. The finished product captured beautifully the appearance and character of our dog, and will be a fine memento for many years to come."
