Mrs Hall’s art challenge

This is a watercolour of a hare.

The reason that I love this piece of artwork is the vibrancy of the colours, the subject matter and that the hare is the focus of the painting with no background to distract.

This beautiful piece of artwork was painted for me by a dear family friend, she runs her own business from home and finds her artwork essential to her mental well-being. This painting hangs in my hall way and reminds me of friendship and happy times.


Experiment with mixing colours on the page. Make the paint very watery and and use a brush or your finger to blend the colours together loosely. Don’t worry about drawing an outline first – just let the paint do the drawing and shaping. Try painting your favourite animal or friend like this.
