A lovely portrait of a lovely chap. Love the fur texture.

Just beautiful.

This is beautiful, Julia! You've s captured that air of quiet calmness and assurance found in many labs. He's just lovely.

I love the look of Labradors and you have nailed it, wonderful.

It's a lovely Pastel Julia - Your skill shines through 100% on this one!

Gorgeous pastel work Julia. Super work.

He is utterly adorable. You have fantastic skill with pastels which just get better and better with every one you do. I also would like to add that the image above is wonderful, but as someone who gets to see many of the originals of your work, I can vouch for the fact that they are even better seen like that.

Thank you all for your lovely comments. Painting can be quite a solitary occupation so it is wonderful to know that folk are enjoying the results.

A very lovely portrait, well painted. You have used the medium of pastel to its best advantage here julia. jx

Julia, I missed this at time of posting. Having seen the original I cannot praise it too much. Lovely lovely work.

Hang on Studio Wall

After struggling with acrylics I have now returned to my favourite medium, pastels and found an old photograph of a dog we met in France a few years ago. Such a lovely old chap just watching the world go by.
