Cutsie Hare and Wishful Wait- watercolour and elegant writer

I have had a really great weekend of painting, I started with my safety blanket of a hare head, and a small hare A4 size, both on 140lb. I bought a small A4 watercolour block, I don’t usually paint on A4, but decided to give it a try, as I am thinking of making a big step and selling some paintings. Up to now the only paintings I have sold are, to friends and family that have liked something I have done, or friends and family requesting a commision piece, usually of pets. The other sales have been through a charity auction for our local hospice, which thankfully my submission made better than I thought it would, which was a great ego boost, even if I didn’t personally benefit to my pocket, I benefitted in having a beaming smile for weeks.

I also bought some new watercolour paint ( to compliment my fav colours of the week which I had)

Windsor and Newton prof series 1 violet

Windsor and Newton prof series 4 cobalt violet

Windsor and Newton artists series 4 cobalt turquoise

Windsor and Newton artists series A transparent turquoise ( already had)

Windsor and Newton cotman series 1 turquoise (already had)

here are my two hares, Cutsie Hare and Wishful Wait

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

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.

  1. You are so wonderful with your animals. Really great. And I think it’s a big challenge also!! Well done!

  2. Thank you Laura, you should give it a go, your flower is beautiful, and I paint my animals in a similar way. My technique is simple-Don’t think of painting an animal, paint the patterns of colour that you see ( that’s what I do, right or wrong)

    • Thank you, I usually paint on quite large sheets, so this was a little challenge on A4, if I am to sell I want postal as easy as possible while I test the waters so to speak. Larger would require a postal tube, roll thingy, which I am not sure about for rolling the watercolour card, I am sure I will learn, the pros and cons to selling, if I ever get started
