Winter - Snowshoe Hare By Robert Bateman

By Robert Bateman

Winter - Snowshoe Hare by Robert Bateman

From under the spruce tree the snowshoe hare peers in his “freeze” pose. His world is full of enemies. His kind provides an important element in the diet of all of the carnivores in the northern forest. When his population falls, the population of his predators also declines.

"The snowshoe hare is a classic animal of the arboreal forest. Its range is virtually the same as the northern wilderness. In fact, even its coat is perfectly suited to the land that is for half the year covered with snow. In the summer it is a warm brown which blends in perfectly with the humus and coniferous needles of the forest floor. In winter its coat is, of course, white which provides camouflage and protection from the predators. This season change of color gives it its other name, "varying hare".

This painting presented a challenge. In order to make the animal stand out, the logical place to put it would have been in front of the dark vegetation, but I though it would be more interesting to paint the hare as nature had intended it - white against white. This gave me little tonal room to maneuver and show all the form and textures on the hair." ~ Robert Bateman
