Hares are known to be so timid, so I love this Latin proverb. I guess we can all be brave when the odds are in our favour!
This is ink and watercolour on canvas. It's 40x40 on a deep edge canvas. The canvas is first prepared with three layers of special primer. It is then possible to paint on it, without the ink or watercolour being repelled. The pigments are artist quality and the ink is Indian. When the image is completed, I use a UV archival spray varnish (matt, so you can't see it) to seal the surface. This protects it from sunlight and ensures the paint doesn't get rubbed off. I then back the canvas and string it, ready to hang. No need for framing or glass. The image continues on the sides, as I think it helps the animal to jump out of the picture.
I will pack it carefully - bubble wrap, box etc and it should arrive safely.
I have four hares in this series, so if you have any questions, please just shout.
