Sleepy Chocolate Lab puppy portrait, by Iain McDonald. An amazingly cute photo which just had to be painted!
In my portrait, I decided to brighten and warm the colours, making the puppy a “richer” chocolate colour, almost red. I then added blue highlights where the light reflects off the puppy’s coat, mirroring the blue of the floor. Another of my favourites!
