‘The Rat Catchers’

I spotted these two Jack Russell’s hunting rats inside an old farm barn. I spent the afternoon with sketch pad making studies of these Jacks, as they were with much excitement kept busy searching out rats. As I couldn’t sketch them together,as in this final painting, I took separate studies and placed them on a bail of straw together as if they had just entered the barn eager to begin their adventure.
