A matching pair- charcoal hares

I am feeling very happy with these two hares, they would look great framed and hung together. I have crept back to my slightly more detailed technique, but I think it works well, for these, so I don’t mind deviating from the new FREEDOM technique.

I have used willow charcoal sticks and derwent tinted charcoal. Daler rowney pastel card  12″x9″ both are drawn ( or is it painted when you use charcoal)  on the same colour card, as the ring bound card pack contains a selection of 6 assorted colours, all earth tones, which is fantastic. For my animals.

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.

  2. Thank you so much Laura, I felt pleased with myself, I have noticed since posing that the hare portrait needs a little more attention to his left eye and the surrounding hair, i am going to blame the late night and false light, as it was so much more obvious this morning.
