I'm developing some paintings of Brown Hares
"Air Time", Brown Hares
Oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches
(Painting in progress)
Below is a sequence showing various stages of the painting so far
Oil, 29 x 39 inches
This is the other painting that I'll be working on. It is a larger canvas. I plan to enhance it with a misty atmosphere. The sun will be coming over the mist from the left of the painting lighting the backs of the hares.
"Golden Hour", Running Hares Study
Oil, 12 x 16 inches, £850
Here is a little study of running brown hares. I was experimenting with how best to capture the low glowing light in the hour before sunset. I often work on a pale orange base, but this time I made the ground more vivid and decided to leave it showing as a more contemporary cameo.
