The Hare and the Moon

12/03/2011

I’m not sure how I feel about this one, I like the coat on the hare, but I feel it looks like an illustration more than a painting. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing; I may revisit it at some point.

I was also going to fill the bottom of the canvas with dandelion clocks, but I thought that this would make it look too cluttered, what do you think?

    I think it is nice. A very beautiful piece full of creativity. Have a great day. !!!

    • Thank you 😀 I did worry terribly about this one… I hope you have a great day, too!

  2. I like his fuzzy little chest.

  3. Oh I love it, I love hares (we say rabbits here in the US). It seems perfect as it is. The owl is spectacular too,so much texture.

    • Thank you 😀 but hares and rabbits are of different species, do you really call them all rabbits? That’s so strange to me ahah 😀

  4. His fur seems real. You’ve captured the texture wonderfully!

    • Thanks so much 😀 That really means a lot, I think the fur is probably my favourite part ahah :> Especially near his bum :>

  5. Well, nobody here in the States ever talks about hares, I thought they were the same as rabbits. But now I see they are not. I like the look of hares. I think we might call them “jack” rabbits, they are bigger and faster, having longer legs and such. Yours looks fabulous with the moon.

    • I think I have heard the expression ‘Jack rabbit’ before, somewhere 😀 I much prefer hares, I don’t think they’re as timid as rabbits are, and also, I always think that a hare could be a professor or something, I can just envision a hare sat by the fire in a leather armchair reading an eighteenth century novel – or something like that. I don’t know why I do this with animals ahahah :>
