|Mountain Hares on Hoy © Tracy Hall 2014|
3" x 4" watercolour on Arches HP paper
My latest miniature painting is of two mountain hares on the island of Hoy in Orkney. One is in it's winter white coat and the other is shown just starting to change from brown. It was a bit of a challenge because of the receding stones...millions of them!
Although native to the highlands, apparently the scottish mountain hare was only introduced to Orkney in the early/mid twentieth century, which I didn't realise.
