description:   Head study of an adult male Clumber Spaniel looking down and to the right



materials:   oil pastels
acid free mounting board


inspiration:   This particular study was inspired by a dreadful second or third generation photocopy of a photo of the magnificent Ch Donovan, that illustration appears on p125 of The White Spaniel. That illustration appeared in Country Life in 1927. My initial cover design was to feature a selection from the artworks over time to feature the white spaniel's evolution, unfortunately that would have involved further outlays in reproduction rights. At least the abandonment of cover design one led me to try oil pastels and to keep my hand and eye in as an artist.
