Boxing Hares - Original
Boxing Hares part of my 'Christmas' collection.
Animal conservation is extremely important to me and many of my paintings are influenced by stunning animals who are threatened by poaching and extinction. During the late 1800s there were about four million brown hares in Britain. But recent surveys show the brown hare has declined by more than 80% during the past 100 years and the decline is ongoing. In some parts of Britain, such as the South-West, the brown hare is almost a rarity and may even be locally extinct.
I used ink on canvas for the original painting the image size is 4" x 6" overall mounted size is 6" x 8".
