your royal hare-ness new class & giveaway

You may have noticed that I have been a big fan of hares for a little while now.  I love to draw them, and I’m also quite partial to putting them on my ceramics.

So I finally got around to making a class that features hares as the central theme, and they do so deserve it!

Your royal-hareness is now live, and teaches you how to easily draw them, as well as add adornments and bright bold watercolours.  You can find all the information about the class here.

To celebrate the launch of this class I am giving away 2 free spots!  I have named all my hares with names that delight me.  So to enter the giveaway simply comment below and tell me what wonderful name you would love to give one of your hares.

Winners will be drawn on Friday 10th November Aussie Time (Thursday for those of you in the USA).  You will be notified by email if you have won a spot.

**If you purchase the class and then win a spot you will be reimbursed.

  14. We live near the Coorong, a Ramsar protected area in Sth Australia (sandhills between the ocean and river is the easiest way to describe it) and have lots of hares on the nearby islands and mainland. They are so hilarious with their huge ears and are surprisingly big.
    I would name one if my hares Queen Coorong, a nod to our beautiful location.

  15. Princess Harriet, Hare to the throne.

    Your paintings of Royal Hares are beautiful! I love your style. I first found you on Sketchbook Revival and love my cottage with splashes of colour defined by black ink.

  16. I’m actually vacationing in Oz right now and would love to win. For no particular reason, I think the name I would choose would be Izzabella. It just feels right! 💕

  18. What about Hareratia, or Haremscarem? My Hare Lady, Hare Grylls?
    Never seen such glam hares!

  19. Thanks for the chance, Toni! I had a pet rabbit that I LOVED. It was thought to be a ‘boy’ but turned out to be a ‘girl’ so her name became ‘BooBoo’ (slang in the US for mistake). (My son had originally called it ‘Studdliest Spartacus’ as he was 12 and the school mascot was the Spartans). LOL Anyway, I loved the Boo and miss her still. So, I would name an art rabbit Boo.

It’s my youngest daughter’s middle name and we like to make art together 💕 I adore your hare’s and the elegance of all your work. Following you is such an inspiration! Thank you!

I live in Newfoundland – about as far from AU as you can get – but we have artic hare here (some that find their way onto my property from time to time). The particular hare is the subspecis “Lepus arcticus bangsii” but I’d call him Articus for short!

  48. Bella Bunny. I adore rabbits and my sweet dog Bella Grace. I was blessed to have a bunny live in my back garden this summer. She dug a hole under a butterfly bush and proceeded to grace me daily with her presence. She would come and nap under the shrub during the hottest part of the day for a few hours. I am guessing that between the cooler dirt and the shade she found some relief. I feel so grateful and blessed to have been granted such a beautiful gift.

  49. I have loved the classes of yours I’ve taken and this one definitely will be quite delightful. Your rabbits are the sweetest sparkly gems.
