Portrait Sketch of Hudson

/ / Animal Dog Portrait Sketch

An oil portrait of a black lab done in a vignette style. The background is partially unfinished.

Hudon.  12" x 9", oil on linen panel. 2014.

A portrait of Hudson that I finished this week.  After toning the canvas with a two color wash I did a full value monochrome block in prior to putting on the final layers (there's a bit of glare in the image).
