About the Hare

My hare that I have created, I feel, is both abstract and authentic. I wanted to clearly convey the theme of the Cotswolds onto my hare. I came up with a few different ideas and eventually decided to use all of them combined. This explains the different segments on my hare. The head of the hare however, I decided to keep realistic.

My hare that I have created, I feel, is both abstract and authentic. I wanted to clearly convey the theme of the Cotswolds onto my hare. I came up with a few different ideas and eventually decided to use all of them combined. This explains the different segments on my hare. The head of the hare however, I decided to keep realistic. The main body of my hare has the different names of either streets or well-known/famous places throughout the Cotswolds and I decided to choose this as it is bold and stands out due to the black and white used. Then, around the back of the hare and the thighs, I decided to paint Swans, sat in the River Thames, as this is also an animal commonly seen throughout the Cotswolds. The bottom of the swans will also touch on the back, creating a sort of wing effect. I’ve also included the river around the swans to show that they are swimming on the River Thames.

My name is Evie Horrell, I am 17 years old and I have grown up in the Cotswolds. From a young age I’ve always loved to draw, paint and sew so I knew I was creative. Art has always been my strongest subject. Whenever I had art in lower school I would look forward to it and it would be the highlight of my day because it would allow me to show off what I was good at. Leading on from this, I therefore chose to take art as one of my GCSE’s and successfully received a B grade which I was proud of. Now at A-level, two out of three of my subjects are creative as it is something I wish to pursue when I am older. These two subjects are Graphic Design and Photography which I both love. My third subject I have taken is English Literature and Language which is also creative to a certain extent. So my main reason for wanting to participate in the hare trail is because I simply love creating pieces of art- especially for people all over the Cotswolds to see. However, my second reason is also due to the fact that it goes to a good cause and helps others. So not only do I get to do something I love but I also get to help other people! It’s a win win!  Finally doing this also benefits me in the long run as I will be able to put this on my CV and it will allow me to stand out from others when applying for university courses.
