This extremely handsome boy is Thomas. I've made a start on his portrait but I had to take a bit of time out from it last week to work on one of my own paintings. I find my eyes get very tired from concentrating on getting all the detail right when I work on commissions and every now and then I need to give them a rest, and with my original work not being quite so detailed and also not having to worry so much about getting everything spot on, I use these times to produce my own paintings. I took the photo for this painting at the 3 Counties Show when the hunt were taking their hounds around the main ring and I thought it would be a great opportunity to produce something slightly different to my normal paintings.
