Two quickies for you today as I needed to play catch up! 3 days behind aaarrrghhh! This hare sketchy was painted from a photo by Gary Jones. Yet another species which has seen a big decline in the last century in Britain - to read more about the brown hare click this link which takes you to the Hare Preservation Trust website.
and for painting no. 23 I've done a little moley - the ultimate digging machine! About 30 species of mole are said to exist throughout the world but the only mole present in Britain is the European mole - their eyes are small and completely hidden in the fur - so quite a challenge to paint as I do tend to focus on the eyes when painting animals - but I hope I've given my little moley some character!
Now I'd better get on and paint no. 24!!!!
