Charcoal on paper 76x56 cm Unframed I keep going back to drawing hares as they are far and away my favourite animal in the UK. They are graceful, mysterious creatures with huge eyes and long, long ears. Hares are not still for long as they are shy, hyper-alert animals and they are hard to spot as they are usually concealed by the crops in the fields they run in.
To my great delight this summer, shrews have been coming into the studio while the door is open (along with birds, bees, butterflies and dragon flies.) I hope this means I have a healthy population of them in my garden. Pastel 42x29.5cms Unframed
I love foxes and am very pleased to introduce The Fox Box. Each of the eight images is taken from a series of fox portraits that I have made over the years - from my garden, from the city streets and from the countryside.
