This was a very large piece of mount board,and the largest hare I have created yet! I choose to use charcoal, for a change. I didn’t find the mount board the best base to use with charcoal. This is a very dark piece so, I decided for this reason to call it ‘Shadow in the darkness’.
Large charcoal hare on mount board ‘shadow in the darkness’
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.

Ahhh, thank you, I enjoyed putting the charcoal down, I would like to try again on a better base material, but a different hare pose.
