Artist's description:

After the Boxing Day Meet the huntsman is taking his hounds back to kennels, his Whipper In behind him.

I played with the contrast between the big blocks of colour- their pink coats and the dark green foliage and the wet grey road and also the opportunity to explore the hounds coats of many colours.

I have been going to the Meet for years to watch the first few hedges jumped, with varying degrees of skill and courage and wanted to catch something of the day, other than an update of a nineteenth century sporting print of hounds in full cry. This is more intimate: dirty , damp and tired, everyone is going home.
