brown hare watercolour ‘Esme’

Having had a very unproductive couple of weeks of painting, I decided to get the paints out. I received my new paint palette during the week, it came four months after I had ordered it from Jacksons It had been on back order, but there had been delays on them coming into the country. I am so happy with it, it has lots of small sections, and most importantly for me, a lid that shuts, to keep the cats off! However a great bonus, having put some paint in during the week, when I began my hare….. Five days later the paint is much like it would be straight out of the tube, result! Happy me, worth the wait. I think it is their academy range? Such a long time ago I can’t recall the name of it. I place an A 4 damp piece of felt over the paint, but not touching them… Then seal the lid. Yippee.

this is my brown hare ‘Esme’ ….getting back into the swing.

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.
