Charcoal dark tones hare ‘ Watch It’!

After a hectic week, I have eventually managed to grab hold of the charcoal to have another play, it has been long waited, I had really enjoyed it previously and I think the willow stick was jumping out the box to give me black fingers ……and it did just that as I really went mad with the black! I have decided I need a better putty rubber, although I bought a new one, it was not great for the job, it was not very pliable, stretchy, or even erased that well……now on the hunt for a good one, any suggestions, I have heard FCastell is ok? I Used my new pad of mixed media paper by 169lb by daler rowney, I am very pleased with the quality for the price, it worked pretty well, but not quite as well as on the pastel paper by daler rowney ( I could not afford a large pad of pastel paper).

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.

    I make such a mess with pastel…I admire your control. And I never have any luck with erasers! Great face. (K.)

    • Thank you. Now that would be great, I would love a real hare, I have considered getting a Belgian hare ( which is really a rabbit) but I have a cat that is keen on rabbit snacks! And a dog that probably would not be a good mix 😕 if I had one I would like it to run free more than locked in a cage. Maybe one day?
