HARE - Semi-blind one-liner pen and wash of a watchful hare. I don't know why, but hares do lend themselves to being painted in extravagant colours and I also felt compelled to paint this one that way as well.

I love hares and this one in particular

Great work Thea and I love how you describe it

You have caught the way they look a treat well done Thea

Thank you very much Glennis, Dennis R and Dennis for your kind comments. This is the first hare I have ever drawn or painted and I found that they are really are fun to do. I have actually done another version of this hare in a new experimental style, which I will post a day or so.

I can tell that you thorally enjoyed painting this Thea! The hare is lovely :)

Quite a few hares on the gallery recently Thea, there is something very appealing about them isn't there, those long ears add a touch of quirkiness! Love this one painted in your unmistakeable style!

Love the colours Thea

You've done a smashing job here Thea. Hares are very "photogenic" and with just a few lines and lots of splashes of colour, he's full of life. (ps Got a mail saying you'd posted !!)

Isn't he just gorgeous Thea! I love the way you have concentrated drawing just the head and still have managed to create an illusion of the body. Beautiful use of colours and those small coloured dots make it a "Thea".

Could be from Alice in Wonderland Thea, he is great!

Thank you very much Sarah, Christine, All, Avril, Satu and Carole for such encouraging and kind comments. Satu, if you think the 'coloured dots' make it a 'Thea' - then wait until you see the next one - might have gone a bit overboard, lol!

A wonderfully lovely fairy tale hare Thea. I am going to twirl my magic wand and make him come alive for my 3 year old.

Now who would have thought that a hare could be such a good looker? This one certainly is! I love his fluttering eyelashes (has to be a female one!) You're brave with your choice of colour Thea and these are delicious, so well put together, right down to the touch of blue in between his, I mean her ears. Super work and a pleasure to see such a clear, good size photo of your hare painting!

Thank you Kal and Louise for such nice comments. Definitely a lady hare, Louise, with those eyelashes! Mind you, as I have said before in the comments on this painting - wait until you see the next one - went a bit mad I think!!

A lovely lady hare of course!

More inclined to think it's a buck judging by the width of its forehead but whatever a handsome beast.

Thank you very much Debs and Michael - lovely comments. Michael, I confess to not being a connoisseur of bunnies - they all look the same to me apart from hares having longer back legs and longer ears. We shall agree that it is of indeterminate sex!!

I'd kill for those eye lashes! The one I get in the garden isn't a patch on this one.

Love that outrageous palette, Thea! It works really well with the spatters and the loose lines.

About the Artist
Thea Cable

I am a watercolourist first and foremost as I love the qualities of the medium, its riskiness and unpredictability. I started painting about 8 years ago and it has now become an integral part of my life. Hopefully, I will continue to paint into my dotage as I am given to understand that you can…
