    Woundwort and he really is a grim customer I don t think that even you d match up to him Bigwig He s almost as big as a hare and there s something about his mere presence that frightens you as if blood and fighting and killing were all just part of the day s work to him Having worked his way up and created his own empire fighting fiercefully all his enemies scars on the body and splits in his ears depict this aspect of his personality From Chapter 34 General Woundwort In combat he was terrifying fighting entirely to kill indifferent to any wounds he received himself and closing with his adversaries until his weight overbore and exhausted them His eyes are wide and as no particular colour is indicated in the book being a wild rabbit I painted them in a lighter shade of browns and yellows From Chapter 37 The Thunder Builds Up Woundwort stared at him Bigwig out of his great pale eyes The Landscape Visiting the real places of the story always plays an important part in the creation of the paintings The distant background has been carefully reproduced and the roadless arch described in the book appears between the trees marking the railway line A hedge runs on the evening side and it is possible to distinguish the silhouette of a tree representing the ash tree mentioned in the book while Bigwig leads Blackavar and the does in their escape from the Mark ground From Chapter 38 The Thunder Breaks Over on the evening side a hedge ran down the length of the field towards the iron road He Bigwig saw Blackavar near by and ran across to him I want everyone the other side of that hedge he said Can you get hold of some of them and bring them that way Go straight to that ash tree in the hedge he said and take all the does you can pick up on the way Get through to the other side and I ll be there as soon as you are The pasture field has nowadays been ploughed but I painted grass as described in the story It s orientated south eastwards and therefore the sun is setting on the opposite side behind the trees of the narrow wood bordering the pasture field The last light flashes on the distant landscape and is reflected by the little clouds in the sky Long south eastwards shadows are thrown on the grass by the trees The entire foreground is already in deep shadow as evening is approaching the light is failing and is almost dark on the edge of the field The Flora Plants and flowers that appear in the painting are those described in the book From Chapter 34 General Woundwort Captain Chervil one of the two officers of the Mark had just returned from a round of his sentries and was talking to some of the does near the centre of the
