6#worldwatercolormonth back to the hares

For today’s post I have gone back to my old friend the hare. This hare was found on the Facebook page photos for artists, the photograph was taken by Danny Brannigan. This is a great group to join for inspiration. My version of this hare was completed in two days, basic hare was loosely painted yesterday, then the addition of the hairs and eye was finished today. For this reason I am calling him’The day after yesterday’ 16″x12″ 140lb cold pressed.

I am loving this months worldwatercolormonth, it is giving me the ideal opportunity to create pieces for the upcoming Hampshire open studio, in August …and of course some great opportunities to just practice pieces, just because 😀

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.

    this is just absolutely stunning! I don’t know how you do it!!!??? All watercolor? How much time does something like this take? How many “layers?” Would you ever consider showing progress pics? I’m just blown away by the eye and the fur and everything about this!

  7. Absolutely incredible work. How do you do it????? Holy heck, Rebecca. You would rock YouTube. Did you know you can actually make money from YT doing this? I think it’s why so many really talented people are out there doing it. You have fur down to a science, and people want to know how to do this! Not to mention horses. Your channel would be rocking. Beautiful work!

    What an absolute beauty, those lovely markings. The fur is exquisite! And the power of that startled eye… he’s about to bolt, methinks!

  12. I love him! A truly handsome fellow-and there is such a sense of movement-as if all the attention he has gained makes him want to leap out of the picture-a wonderful piece Rebecca!
