I started this painting in the new year after the local new forest hunt Boxing Day meet. I took a few nice photos of the hounds, I had planned the image I wanted to get, but there were so many people that attended the meet in support, that I really gave up trying ( I will attend a quieter meet during the season, maybe I will get lucky then)? Itching to get painting after Christmas, I started on this solitary hound. I did give up on him for a bit, then finished off this week. I plan to paint him again in a more abstract style, which I have started, so it would be a good comparison.
