Haze the Black Labrador Acrylic Painting on Gessobord
This is our beautiful Black Labrador Haze, swimming in the lake at the QE2 park at Woodhorn in Northumberland. The photograph was taken on a sunny Sunday afternoon and is part of a quad of Acrylic portraits of our doggies swimming. You can see our CASPER and Pip too which are two other portraits which will be hung together.
MEDIUM: Acrylics on board
CREATING THE PORTRAIT:
Black animals can be very difficult to capture with a camera as, in the wrong light, details can be lost in shadow and other areas can be over exposed. Although this image is a little bright, the beauty of Art is being able to adapt wherever needed and the final Artwork will offer a nice balance of tones. The background will be finalised with texture and appear softer than the first base layers currently seen here.
