your royal hare-ness


Come and join me for all the pomp and pageantry in the kingdom of hares!  Use simple graphite linework and a few paint colours to create 4 mischievous, and adorable, hares.



What is a hare without a crown upon its head?  It’s a bare hare.  But what of the bejewelled ones?  Oh, they reside in the kindom of hares!  Where mischief and frivolity abound.

The cost for this class is US$69.

Sometimes  a simple sketch with graphite can turn into a royal extravaganza! By simply adding in a crown, and a neckline adornment of jewels! Then just add the colours which bring it all to life.

In this class you will create 4 projects, namely Clarence, Bernadette, Henrietta and lastly Augustus, who all live in the kingdom of hares.

There is a lesson on how to structure the head using simple shapes, it is much easier than it looks to create these hare drawings.  I learnt a lot from creating hare sculptures in clay, then translated what I gained from that process into my drawings. I will share that all with you so you can easily replicate a hares head at any angle.

We’ll use loose watercolour techniques with lots of water so it all flows and blends, let the paint do the work, with just a little bit of cajoling.

Come and join me in the royal kingdom of hares, for all the fun and frivolity!
