Watercolours of local woodland animals and other wildlife became popular during the Renaissance; Albrecht Durer's hare painting typifies the detail often sought by British wildlife watercolour artists nowadays. Watercolour lends itself to multiple layers that can be used to build up detail. It is a versatile medium as it can also be applied loosely in light washes for a more modern and illustrative effect.
