Black Labrador Begging, watercolour illustration

Black Labradors might just be the hardest thing to paint in watercolours!  Of course, black can look purple and blue, so there are lots of subtle and beautiful colour variations to find within their lovely glossy coats.  I produced this painting for a range of dog mugs for Hudson and Middleton china.  The original painting is still available in my shop.
