I’ve recently returned from Cymru, where I filled my sketch books with inspiration. While there, I was lucky enough to see a lot of these wonderful creatures,very close to the house where I stay.  One small leveret even sat on the doorstep cleaning his ears, totally oblivious to my presence.

There is something truly magical about hares. They run like the wind and they can disappear in an instant.

It was good to see their numbers up – a sign that agriculture and people are not disturbing or polluting their habitats.

I painted this hare (sgwarnog) while I was there and have since made it into a card and limited edition giclee print which you can purchase from my online shop.


New art card and giclee print are available
