Artist's description:

I may have mentioned that I love hares....
What I wanted to capture in this painting was the sheer exuberance of a running hare and, I suppose, the pleasure I feel when I see one. You have to be patient, to stand still and hope, but it's worth it.
This hare is drawn with a steel nibbed dip pen. I sketched running hares for a while in preparation for it - pen is a bit unforgiving so practise is necessary! - and then marked the placement of limbs and head and so on very faintly in pencil. hen drew the hare in ink.
You have to be bold with a dip pen and just go for it, allowing the nib to do its thing, the line changing with the angle and pressure. It's a bit nerve wracking but I love the freedom that comes with just letting go and letting it happen.

The yellow background is unusual for me - it's a bit bold and bright! But I wanted to capure the brightness of a spring morning and the yellow sky that happens sometimes in the very early morning.

In a light wood frame, ready to hang.
