About the Hare

Over the past few years I have been engaged in a study of the Cotswold Hills with a view to producing water-colour and acrylic paintings of the landscape, towns and historical features which make the Cotswold Hills one of the most popular Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Great Britain.
I have travelled extensively from the region’s top edge just north of Chipping Campden down to the village of Midford at the southern tip and have explored many footpaths and lanes on foot, bicycle, bus and car. Haresfield Beacon – (Grid Ref – SO819088) is registered as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and I believe is one of the best places which contains all the salient features of the Cotswold Hills.
My proposed design is based on features which give the Cotswolds its distinctive appearance – the Limestone drystone wall with the vertical capping stones, the grass which provides the rich cover and pasture for grazing sheep and cattle, the founding wealth of the region – these provide my foreground whilst over the wall we view the amazing panorama from Standish Wood on the left round to the River Severn winding across the valley and stretching off to the Forest of Dean in near distance and on a clear day, the Welsh Mountains in far distance.
The proposed painting is to be a 3600 panorama based on my observations, drawings and photographs to be executed in finest quality acrylic paints protected by several coats of matt acrylic varnish.
