"Colors" in fox hunting

I researched Fox Hunting on line and found this 
 link to some of the terms used. 
Apparently "colors" refers to the distinctive color of coat and buttons
 each hunt club adopts as their livery. 
Usually hunt staff and male members only wear the scarlet coats.  

Scarlet Coat 
8 x 10 

 I added the blue sky here, 
thinking it would make that red jacket stand out even more.

They NEVER use the term "dogs" when hunting. 
They are referred to as "hounds" only!  


  1. Great use of large blocks of color. Like your style!

  2. ok, lean the sky a little toward green and you'll get that sizzle with the red jacket. My two cents.
    Nice work.
