Hares are handsome creatures and are considered to be the harbinger of Spring. There are many ancient customs and beliefs associated with hares and there are often beautiful carvings and drawings of hares to be found portrayed in churches and cathedrals. Held in high esteem by many people, they are considered mystical and mysterious animals, and for all of the above reasons, I thoroughly enjoyed portraying my ‘Brown Hare’ pencil portrait.

Thank you to Wildlife Photographer John Palmer who kindly provided the photographic reference for my drawing.
