Painting of a hare

I love painting Hares! There is something about their busy on the go character… and those ears! This portrait is titled ‘On the Lookout’ and is acrylic on a 60cm x 60cm box canvas. Lot of fine hair and whiskers detail went into this one. Particular pleased with the atmospheric background created by mixing with sponges.

Many thanks to wildlife photographer Ray Purkiss for allowing me to use his photograph as a reference.
