Hunters

15" x 22", watercolour, 2003, private collection

This was the first painting I did in the late summer of 2003 after an overly-long break from painting. I wanted something challenging and a little complicated and found the photo ref for this in a magazine. I toyed with cropping the woman further or even removing her altogether, leaving just an assembly of beagles, but I like the hint of human making the composition more interesting –especially with the negative space around her.
