|Hare running in the snow - December 2013. Acrylic paint on A6 canvas board|
So with Christmas looming, I realised that they are card sized. So no deep meanings, I just wanted a fun, sweet image of snow and a hare - so here you have it. We all love hares, don't we? There's just something so evocative about them. I'm not so experienced painting with acrylic paints and tiny, so I did have a few difficulties painting the hare in detail. Painting with acrylic is akin to painting with cream cheese - it's sticky, and the raised checkerboard effect of the canvas didn't really help either. Although, I haven't used other paints since my Art Foundation course way back when, I'm thinking gouache paints would be far easier for the tiny detail. Although, with acrylics you do get a great depth of colour that covers the board completely.
