Left over Indian ink hare

So I had some ink left in the ceramic pot, and decided to do a quick hare rather than washing it down the sink. Although it worked with a figure drawing, I found I went too dark,well it was black! ‘I prefer my hares brown ‘ I hear myself saying. I think I need to practice doing hares in one colour, like this black…while still keeping the light areas…I added a little gouache, on this occasion. I reckon with practice, I can achieve the look that I have in my head. For now this is my attempt.

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.
