View Full Version : 12/14 WDE -- Stopping to Smell the Flowers

12-15-2013, 10:55 AM

My contribution to this week's WDE --- I knew this would be challenging, and it is --- not happy with it. I think I might do it over. It's reworked too much and I wish it was 'fresher'. Also, there's something wrong with one of the eyes and I can't put my finger on what it is. So I'll wait a while before I retry this..... Watercolor -- about 2 hours.

I think he's just squinting t the flowers for a closer look Bunny!:)
Maybe you're concerned that he's looking at the big cluster rather than the single one in his hand?
Overall, I think the shape and form of his are both well done - his head and hands are lovely!

Both eyes are not looking at the flower. The right (for us) needs a slightly lower pupil. The left should turn a bit to the right.
But it's a lovely painting.

Lovely painting. If you print out a couple of copies, you can fool around with it to your liking. Sometimes I even print it in black and white outline to keep from being distracted by the colors. A line or two is all the left (our l) needs.
