Thought you might enjoy seeing this piece I did as a gift this Christmas. Schultz and Rylie were my in-laws’ English Labs. Different as night and day, both entirely and completely lovable.
Schultz has been gone for a couple years now, and Rylie for a year. It’s still odd not having them to greet us when we visit.
Schultz generally conducted himself with dignity and restraint when greeting at the door (but boy, that was a big bark if he was so inclined). Rylie was pretty much always exuberant, always loving, always underfoot.
Neither of them would have tolerated those hats for a moment.
I don’t normally work with colored pencils, but it really seemed best for capturing the buttercream coloring of the dogs–Rylie darker than Schultz.
They leave these gaping holes when they move on.
One thought on “English Labradors”
Great job, Abby!
