Tally Hare

About the Hare

My hare design was influenced by my life on the farm and going beating and shooting. The hare will look as if it is going shooting and will be painted wearing three quarter length green trousers, orange socks, boat shoes, a checked shirt, tweed waistcoat and a blue tie. The face, hands etc will be painted to look like an actual hare.

Hello my name is Will and I am 15. I live in a little village called Whelford which is just outside Fairford. I have my own smallholding that includes 2 pigs, 3 sheep, 24 chickens, 10 ducks, 1 cat, 4 kittens and 4 horses. I have always loved being outdoors from a young age and my first memories of experiencing nature in all its glory was helping my Granddad on his pheasant shoot and helping out others on shoot days. I saw plenty of wildlife such as pheasants, deer, hare and foxes. The reason I wanted to take part in this project is because I love art and painting and also nature and wildlife so I thought this was a great opportunity to combine my art, nature and my hobbies.
