  • Dog Portrait Sketch : Mookie


    chocolate lab portrait sketch by Leanne Wildermuth
    Meet Mookie, a chocolate lab portrait that I’ve just begun. This 6″ x 6″ dog portrait (available as a custom portrait package here in my shop) is on a canvas panel and I’ll be working it in oils.

    This sketch of her is a bit rough (and also, taken with my brand spanking new camera, which I’ll tell you all about tomorrow!), the photos are saturated with shadow so I’ll bring out the highlights in her gorgeous brown coat as I paint her.

    I am loving this pose, with her front paws hanging over the ledge of a stair – I’ll work the background in first and show you when it’s finished.

    Awww, I love Mookie’s pose too. I know this is going to turn out just beautiful. I can’t wait to see her finished!

    I love it. You are such an amazing artist. I have a chocolate labrador, Maggie, 5, and she looks identical to Mookie. You are amazing!!! :clapping: :happy: :razz: :rofl:
