This image is hot off the easel. and is a 16" x 20" oil on canvas. The painting depicts the last rays of light on a winters shoot as the Spaniel retrieves and picks up the last bird of the day. The lighting for this painting was why I painted it in subdued complimentary colours. The rim lighting on the dog and pheasant brought the whole thing together.
I shall be sending this image to my publishers this week and it will debut at the CLA Game Fair in July, unless sold beforehand.
