1509: New painting “Paws for Thought”

Posted by Tina on November 13, 2016  /   Posted in Uncategorized

I have been doing this little painting for the last six months. I have been so busy with my Lady Captain’s duties at the golf club that today, Sunday 13th November 2016, for a bit of brain relief I decided to do a little bit of painting.

The idea for this painting came about when I had seen a couple of hares chasing each other about in Watts Wood [Comberton] and they both suddenly stopped. The imagined painting and title “Paws for Thought” came to mind [note not “pause”].

I am indebted to Dave Oates for supplying several photographs of hares which have helped me to portray the thoughts in my head.

Here are the first few progress pictures for your perusal:
