Day 125: The Fun with Fur Resumes…

Baby Rabbit (Watercolour)

I’m very glad to say I’ve had a much better day today and while my baby rabbit fur is still not soft and fluffy I’m much happier with my progress on this piece. Perhaps this is because the grass has become Soooo green that it distracts your eye away from all the brush strokes of the fur 😛

No, really… I wasn’t sure how I was going to tackle such a large expanse of green and definitely didn’t want to paint every blade of grass. When I started I still didn’t have a firm plan and, well, just started – I couldn’t sit there staring at it all afternoon. Luckily, apart from the rather vivid colour it seems to have been a good strategy, and not the first time I’ve tried it to be honest.

I think I might try and tone down the green a little in places, and there are areas that need a bit more shadow too, then there’s the jasmine bush on the left to tackle – yep, even more green 🙂
