Animal portrait: Harry hare

Hares are a huge inspiration for artists, and I’m no exception. 

But why?  Is it their long ears, the way their long legs carry them at speed - or their behaviour in the spring when they box in breeding season?  Or all of the above? 

Harry hare pencil on paper animal portrait artwork by Stella Tooth.

For me, the inspiration for this image is this beautiful animal’s shyness and alertness in the presence of humans - something which sets it apart from its domesticated rabbit cousins.
