    • Thank you for your comment, Wendy. The painting was fun to do. I am having more trouble with the painting I am doing at the moment, probably because it doesn’t have such a clear theme; but I will persevere. But I suspect I won’t finish it by this Saturday, which means I will probably miss an opportunity to exhibit it straight away. But I’ll have a try. I’m glad you like Fly-By-Night, thank you for this.

      • I can really see the adventures the rabbit and child would be having as they fly through the sky at night — it’s really beautiful. I look forward to seeing your next painting!

    • It’d be a jack rabbit in America, and a hare over here – though you wouldn’t see that many white hares, that’s artistic license. It is a preliminary painting for a picture book I am doing. I wrote the story in two hours and have spent two years trying to find the right medium to illustrate it in… have hit on my own method of gouache, coloured pencils and a very fine brush, with watercolour skies. Seems to be working so far. Yes, flying with a hare, rabbit or Pegasus would be fun. Thanks for your comment, Robert. Nice to hear from you.
