I grew up in Potomac, Maryland, home to the venerable Potomac Hunt. Two out of my first three horses were fox-hunters and although I have not been on a hunt in a very long while, it is difficult to forget the good times and excitement of hunting season.
I remain of fan of hunting art and yesterday was reminded of the late 19th and early 20th artist, Cecil Aldin, an artist famous for his hunting scenes. In his honor, I couldn’t resist doing a page of hound sketches. Unfortunately these are not from life, as I don’t have connections to the hunt down in the Fort Lewis area, but they do bring back memories from my teenage years.
These sketches are a mix of pen & ink and colored pencil on craft paper.
