Labrador 1

Two or three labs coming up because I felt the need to practice this fur colour. It is surprisingly difficult to achieve. I have painted this dog with a very restricted palette: just the 3 primaries (cad red medium, cad yellow light, French ultramarine) and white. I used black only for the pupil of the eye and the centre of his nostril. I get on better with alla prima paintings if I keep black off the palette.
Yesterday I opened an Etsy shop just to see if that market place might work for me. What do you think? Comments welcome.
