Here’s a new hare painting, Little Spring Hare. This one is off to the #twitterartexhibit TAE17 UK – a charity art auction to raise money for Molly Olly’s Wishes in Stratford upon Avon 1-19 April 2017.
I’ve been working on a small Puma painting. I’m thinking of some large paintings of big cats but wanted to start with something a bit smaller with a good excuse to play with lots of colour. So a glorious golden cougar with a blue green background seemed like a great place to start. She is a very colourful girl, a 10×10 inch acrylic painting on a panel. Now I just have to decide on what colour frame to get for her.
I had fun with this one. :-) I wanted to do a big hare with thick juicy paint. I like this standing pose with the light coming from behind him and his shadow in front of him. He’s painted with thick acrylics using a knife and a brush on a 24×24 inch stretched canvas. I enjoyed it so much I’m tempted to do another large painting soon.
I am not just making jewellery, I am doing a lot of painting too. This one is tiger out for a stroll. I love this head on view of him, you really see what a powerful cat he is as he strolls along the bank.
He is painted in watercolour and inks with a touch of thicker acrylic paint, on 20×14 inch Fabriano Artistico paper, which has a lovely texture. He comes in a 24×18 inch double mount.
My new resin piece is a hare by moonlight. He sits in the grass with a huge pearly moon behind him. I have some new metallic pigments and I wanted to use them in this piece. I like the way they look in his coat, the rusty colour in his body is gorgeous.
A hare hopping through the fields is a sign that spring is on it’s way. This hare is painted in watercolour and paint pens on Saunders Waterford 16×12 inch paper. His whiskers are gold, lilac and teal.
Oh those ears and whiskers! I had fun with this boy, he is painted with liquid paints and paint pens on 16×16 inch Fabriano paper. Or I should say scribbled with liquid paint and drip pens in hot colours, red, orange and yellows with teal and green whiskers. A really colorful character. :-)
A flying hare coming in to land through a cloud of colour, twitching his teal and gold whiskers. He is painted on 16×12 inch Saunders Waterford paper using watercolour, a touch of ink and paint pens.
A new hare print available, One In The Eye, a pair of boxing hares leaping through the grass.
Another snow leopard, this time in water media with lots of messy splashing around and loads of colour. I love her profile and thought I’d add a splash of pink and gold vanishing out of the picture. I’m imagining an exotic bird beating a hasty retreat!
