Traditional painting of a brown hare in coloured pencils.
|Wildlife Art : Hare Painting|
Hares used to be a familiar sight along the Sussex Downs and surrounding areas, but their numbers have been declining over the years. However, it is still possible to spot wild brown hares - Lepus europaeus – in the relatively local countryside of Sussex (including the Downs), Surrey and Kent in the South East of England, but you would have to be very quick to paint one in the field, as they can sprint at over 45 mph with those incredibly long and powerful hind legs!
