'Running Hare'

'Running Hare' - size approx 30x40cm

Hare number 2 of the year is now complete - assuming I don't fiddle with it anymore!

Do I continue with the hares, or do I take a break?  Maybe one more!!

Another Hare

Here is hare number 2 for 2012.  I've gone for a slightly different feel to the background/foreground with this one.  Almost given it a watercolour look - no idea why, it just kind of happened!

I hope to have this complete within the next 2 days.

Hare - 'Alert'
Size approx 30x40cm
Just finished this one.  Something I wouldn't recommend doing, but you may notice that I have completely changed the light source from the last upload. I had actually finished the drawing before deciding it needed something else - added an extra 2 hours or so to the job, but there you go!!

New work for 2012

This time of year always gives me plenty (actually, a little too much) drawing time - the shows don't tend to kick in until Easter, so it's time to get scribbling!

I thought i'd post some of the initial sketches of planned drawings.  I'm in the mood for a bit of a Hare blitz, so here are 4 planned hare drawings.  They are not the best scans, but should give an idea of the feel and pose of each piece (you'll notice that even when sketching, I can't help but add more detail to the eyes than is necessary for a sketch!!)

I receive more enquiries for hare originals than anything else and, as my hare originals sell very quickly, I never have them for very long.  So anyone out there interested in any of these, even at this early stage, let me know and I can always give more details and first refusal on the finished piece.
