Portfolio > Hares

Have you ever tried to get a glimpse of a Hare? I find even trying to photograph them almost impossible. Often, before I have seen them, they are racing for cover and all I see is a flash of grey or brown.

They are fast, beautiful; fascinating animals … I am often told the Hares I paint do not look happy, fluffy or cute. I try to paint what I see; my aim is to capture my subject’s personality through its body language and movement. These hares are wild animals and I think this should be celebrated.
