A Dorset Artists painting of roughshooting pigeons and ducks.
The concept for this abstract painting, occurred after forming a mental picture whilst watching clay pigeon shooting in Dorset. Most noteworthy the Shooters were wearing typical shooting attire with pockets filled with gunshot cartridges. During that day, I made a decision to carry my painting tools on a rough shoot. Normally comprising of approximately four men with shotguns and various gundogs.
On The Shoot
What a day I had!! After dodging the rain all morning, the weather, thankfully cleared in early afternoon. having walked some miles through wet fields, and woods. finallyI sketched some good content for my painting. Enabling me to produce the finished product shown here.
