Black Labrador dog Portrait Painting, Life size

Handsome Diego was a wonderful model for this recent commissioned Labrador dog portrait painting.  I had a great reference photo, which always makes the painting process easier.  I love that this collector chose the large 20"x16" size.  This makes the subject life-sized.  It will be a lovely tribute to his beloved black Lab where it hangs in his home.

My portrait paintings are done in acrylic on stretched canvas.  There is a final protective coat applied so the paintings can be framed without glass or, since I paint around the edges of the wrapped canvas, they can be hung unframed.  For more information and to order your own, visit my website here:  OtterTail Dog Art Portrait Paintings.  In addition, you can purchase this and many of my other paintings as prints, greeting cards, and images on products in my online shops at Amy Reges Fine Art and OtterTail Art for Dog Lovers Shop.
