Portrait of Black Lab “Butch”

8×10 pencil drawing of black lab mix commissioned by a friend I met in a moms hiking group. This was for her husband’s birthday (he loved it!). Black dogs are a lot more work than the lighter dogs I had been doing lately but I just love the end result how much it pops off the page. I love drawing labs because I have one myself so I am most familiar with them and I have drawn quite a few. My next drawong to be done is actually another lab so keep an eye out for him later.

My drawing next to reference photo below provided by owner. 

If you would like to commission me to draw a pet portrait for you just email Thanks!
