View Full Version : Rabbit Days

5x7.25 watercolor, gouache, and ink line on old novel page of a discarded book done today. Sketched with Pigma Micron 01 pen I put in the dark mixed blacks and browns first then added white gouache on his fur. Whiskers were drawn with white gel pen. Now that Spring put in an appearance we are seeing rabbits everywhere so rabbit days are here again, yay! Love to paint black and white subjects so hope you enjoy.
C&C welcome :wave:

Just love it Kay. I so enjoy works done on printed pages. Seems to give them added life. Your rabbit is delightful.

What a nice idea to paint on a novel page, but my heart hurts for the book. :p The rabbit is lovely.

Very creative Kay. I've never seen someone paint on a printed page. It gives the rabbit an interesting affect.

Thanks to all! As I said, the book was discarded and was able to find an undamaged page to save.

Beautiful bunny Kay! I love all the colours that you've used in the dark patches of fur. The printed page gives it a lot of interest. :)

He's wonderful! Being on a printed page makes it seem magical, like a bit of the book becomes real!

I've always liked the look of artwork on book pages, and this is lovely! It suits nicely with your style, Kay. Excellent work!
