The Canine Color Palette

Labrador Retriever, lab, labs, pen and inkA pen and ink drawing of a Labrador Retriever isn’t a typical post for someone who lives with a bunch of Golden Retrievers. I did this picture as part of a fundraiser for our local retriever club.  A raffle prize of a pen and ink of the winner’s dog.

It seems appropriate to post the picture of the lab in honor of our guests.  We are taking care of three rowdy Labrador retrievers for the next two weeks. They came in black, yellow and chocolate.  We mixed them with gold for a multi-color canine color palette.

Mixing the colors.

I have noticed that these colors blend well together.  However, they do run a lot, and drool too.  I think I’ll call this color palette “Retrievers.”

The race is on!

The golden streak!

I took these pictures in the low, early morning light.  They aren’t very sharp, but I think the action makes up for it.
