Naturedoodlewash watercolour otter

Feeling chuffed with myself, having joined in with Charlie’s nature hike for a second day.

Today I took a trip down memory lane, to somewhere I took my daughter many years ago. It used to be called the ‘otter and owl sanctuary’, now it is called the ‘new forest wildlife park’. They used to specialise in just a few species, but now house quite a variety of European and non European animals. Otters can be found in many areas around the uk, unfortunately I have only ever seen one at this centre… least you get to see them up close. They are gorgeous and it always reminds me of an old film I watched as a child called ‘ Tarka the otter’, I seem to remember crying, so it must have been sad, I think it was based on a true story, but time could have distorted my memory on that one.

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 itโ€™s hairy, I will be sure to try.
