|English Cream Golden Retriever Portraits|
They are actually the oldest bloodline for goldens, and their eyes are a bit rounder and darker. They also statistically have a lower rate of being struck with cancer. The reasoning is that they are more carefully bred. I have a feeling this is why these guys were chosen, since their owner's last dog, died. I did his portrait just before he lost his battle.
But it's the color! I really thought there was something wrong with the color, until "mom" told me they were English Creams! Rather than lots of gold, oranges and yellows that I usually use, I needed to pull out the pinks, lavenders and pinks in addition to some warmer tones! They also tend to be a little fluffier.
Now, I have a friend with Goldens and she literally took fur with her to pick out carpet colors. And she is a clean freak, but you know they do leave their beautiful hair around for us to pick up! If she gets English Creams, she'll have a whole new palette to work on in her bedroom!
