Albrecht Durer is another of my favourite artists. Even after half a millennia, his work and talent shine. I particularly like his Hare.. done is watercolour and bodycolour. Yah.. I had to look bodycolour up.. ;o)

Durer, Hare

Albrecht Durer, Hare, 1502

Who else was drawing rhinos back then? This is a classic. I have been fascinated by this since I was a kid.

Durer was very precocious.  He drew this self portrait at age 13.

Albrecht Durer, Self Portrait at age 13!

You can tell this is still the middle ages.  I like this bagpiper.  Reminds me of my old buddy Ernie.
