Golden retriever

Golden Retriever Oil Painting
Golden retrievers and Golden Labradors are dogs I have always found difficult to paint: they are number 3 in the difficult list (with black dogs and white dogs coming first and second).
Part of the issue is accurate colour mixing for the coat, avoiding the too pink or too yellow look.
I practised first for this pretty dog, using combinations of terra rosa (W&N), yellow ochre (Michael Harding), burnt sienna (W&N) and Transparent Oxide Red (Rembrandt). 
I have posted my colour swatches below in case they are of help to anyone:
