Start of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever Painting May 31, 2014 09:36

Last night I started this Chesapeake Bay Retriever painting. The dog is absolutely gorgeous and I find him irresistible to paint. He just has the look of a Chessie that says, intelligence, loyalty, and a touch of mischievous in his eyes. This being just the grisaille, it perhaps is hard to see but with the additional glazes of color it will become apparent to the viewer.

I am taking a break from the Setter’s in the Sporting Dog Series and skipping around to some other breeds that I enjoy painting.
