I started this painting in 2015 (hence the 1509 Artist code). I had done a composition drawing of the hares using resource photographs very kindly supplied by David Oates (Wild Oates Photography) in August 2016. I worked on the painting a few times since then, and finally completed it on 8 February 2018. It is not in my usual style of complete detail; it is more loose with a bit of fantasy – but the poses of the hares themselves are real! A cute little painting which makes me smile every time I look at it – and I hope it does the same for you.
