Eventually I think he is complete, but not named…yet, struggled with the whiskers, but decided they would have to do, it really is pretty hard to get a thin line, and I am sure my hand was shaking, with the nerves of putting the oil on the canvas, worrying how the line would appear freaked me out, that much,it is ridiculous. How would I correct it if it went so terribly wrong? Still pheww for me, I am happy enough……..just though of his name, due to the time it has taken’HARE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW ‘.
My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow.
I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use.
I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.
