This dog lives at the same house as the boxer puppy I painted previously in I Need a Cape. I love how sweet labs are. This chocolate lab looks like it's watching a butterfly, and since I have a lot of that space cadet tendency myself, I saw an opportunity for a great painting.
I love the colors in the brushwork in a chocolate lab - so many visible reflections in their shiny coats. That little hit of purple in the reflective areas is my favorite.
