Day 22 and 23 - catching up!!


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!!!!

  1. Oh a Hare, I spent hours at the Bird Fair looking at hare sculptures and paintings. Love Moley too - we call Harley Moley, as he looks like a little mole when he takes his glasses off :)
