i have had quite a busy week painting, after posting my happy Easter hare/ rabbit, I was asked if I could paint something similar, but with pink/ purple tones, and much, much larger. I am never very confident with commision pieces, I am always worried that the piece may not be upto the persons expectations. Well painting complete, and new owners are happy, so painting is sold, yippee!
Despite being poorly and not able to attend the hospice auction of paintings ( which included my hare stare oil painting) I was told it sold for more than I had expected, and had a number of bidders.The evening apparently went well and plenty of money was raised in the process.
Hare, watercolour and neocolor pastels. 40×60 cm
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.
Great painting. It reminds me of the album from Van Dyke parks “jump” with the great song “Opportunity for two” it makes me always happy when I hear it.
