"At Spinney Cottage"
During my first photographic session for the Spinney Lane series, I visited a single dog and the results that day were not very pleasing, as there was a cold, biting wind that froze our fingers and made focussing the camera difficult.
But on the way to the exposed lane, where most of the photography took place, I took a few exploratory shots in the driveway leading to the house. Being on its own territory the dog relaxed - so much so that it lay under its favourite hedge and almost dozed off!
By happy chance I got the photographs that made the session worthwhile - the pose was so very typical of the breed that I just couldn't resist including it in the series.
The original drawing took 36 hours to complete and is now owned by Roni Kaluza and Randy Valenti, USA.
