NATIONAL WORKING TERRIER FEDERATION (N.W.T.F.)
AN OPPORTUNITY TO WIN THIS FINE PAINTING AND ORIGINAL PIECE OF ARTWORK.
The painting, “Terrierwork – As Natural as Nature itself” is approximately 35 X 18 cms (14 x 7 inches) in size. It is painted in Gouache paint, which is similar to watercolour but is modified to make it opaque. It differs from watercolour in that the particles are larger and the ratio of pigment to water is much higher. As a result Gouache is heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities.
The view is a cut away of the tunnel of a fox earth. It shows the fox laying in a stop end, with the terrier which has struggled along the narrow passageways now nearing its fox, where it is faced with its last obstacle, a large rock on the tunnel floor.
The painting has been kindly donated by the artist Glyn Jones of North Wales. Glyn has a degree in scientific and wildlife illustration, and a lifetime’s experience of terrierwork. Almost all of his work to date has featured wildlife , working dogs and livestock. He is a practicing and enthusiastic terrierman, and a true countryman with a great love for all forms of countrysports.
