Nigel Hemming New Limited Edition for January 2009: ‘Yellow Cab’

Our good friend and Top UK Canine artist, Nigel Hemming, has just released his latest limited edition piece called ‘Yellow Cab’ for the New Year 2009.

Nigel’s own words:

“For those who follow my work, it is blatantly apparent that I rarely publish
Yellow Labrador images. This is not because I don’t like them, it is – to my
shame – because I cannot sell them.

This could simply be because I’m not very good at painting Yellow Labs! On the
other hand, as I would prefer to believe, it is because the market for
yellows is by no means as buoyant as it is for Blacks.

However you view it, when I was commissioned to paint Zak, the most
handsome, working, Yellow Labrador, the finished portrait cried out to be
published. It is unusual for me to publish a private commission as they are,
more often than not, far too personal for general release. Nevertheless, I
hope you’ll agree that Zak’s portrait – which I’ve entitled ‘Yellow Cab’
is a worthy addition to my range and, let’s face it, Just Dogs aside – its
about time I added a Yellow Labrador to the range. I hope you agree”

(‘Just Dogs – Yellow Labrador’ by Nigel Hemming)

I believe ‘Yellow Cab’ is a worthy addition to Nigel’s huge range of published art. The images featuring Land Rovers appear to have an extra appeal to both Canine art lovers and indeed those who drive Lands Rovers. This is an extra special image, as Nigel hardly ever paints yellow labs into limited edition format.

Thank you

Russell
