Ratting in the barn

Ratting in the barn, oil painting of a JRT, a pet portrait, dog painting, animal artist, Karen Robinson
This is Rosie in the barn on a local farm. She is a good ratter. Jack Russells are supposed to be among the best - my neighbour's JRT catches rats in her barn from between bales of sileage. She lines them up neatly on the lawn underneath the washing line. Yikes. 
I painted Rosie fairly quickly with a bristle brush; she has quite a wire-y coat and I used the impasto marks to try and capture that.
This is my last blog post for this week. Have a great weekend and thank you for looking at my paintings.
