This pastel painting, of a hare grooming itself, was created using soft pastel for the background, and pastel pencils for the fur, whiskers, eyes and details. The paper used is Artspectrum Colourfix.

The sharpened pencils create the detail and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three-dimensional effect to the completed painting.

The reference photograph, of this grooming hare that Ivan worked from, was taken by Dave Blackwell, who gave Ivan permission to use this for this unique, original and detailed pastel artwork.

This hare portrait is supplied with a gold frame, 18inches by 22inches and is delivered free by courier in the UK.

Detailed, realistic and unique pastel artworks

I am a retired veterinary surgeon who has become a pastel artist. Born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, I now live and work in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside. I was introduced to pastels as a teenager by a friend of my father’s and in fact I still have remnants of my first set of pastels. I passed A level art at 16, then went on to complete a veterinary science degree - my understanding of animals allows me to add that something extra to my artwork.

As a pastel artist I feel that pastels have a great vibrancy and richness of colour that is often under appreciated. I work largely from photographs and undertake commission work as well as create artwork in a wide range of subject matter. I like to give each piece a three dimensional effect and detail is of importance to me - each 12in by 16in artwork takes me 25 to 30 hours to complete.

I have completed a large number of works in the past 15 years, many of which can be seen on this website. I admire the work of many artists including the Impressionists, Pre-Raphaelites, David Shepherd, Simon Coombes and many of my contemporaries. I have exhibited widely in Herefordshire and currently have original work exhibited at the Makers Gallery in Crickhowell, Wales. I will also be exhibiting during H-art ( Herefordshire Art Week ) in Kingsland, Herefordshire between the 4th and 12th of September 2021. More news on this to follow.....
