That looks great DessertRat! It reminds me of my last dog who would insist on carrying a toy with him on our walks.
I really like the washed appearance of the background colors! did you use an acrylic pen to get the good black lines? I'm working on my lines with lner brushes. It's taken a while but it's moving along!
I did use an Industrial Sharpie to draw the lines over the b/g, then I painted over them with a round brush.
I didn't see the "rabbit" until near the end of the painting. It wasn't intentional.
I was really just trying to get some idea how paint would flow. This is the picture that caused me to ask, "Why is this paint not more opaque."
Although it started as just an exercise in using the paint, I rather liked the outcome and since the canvas came with a nice frame from the local thrift store, I hung it in our mid-century modern dining room.
There's a lot wrong with it, but I strongly resisted the urge to go back and fix the errors.
Thanks for all the encouraging comments! Yes, I suppose it does belong in a different forum?
