This motif was chosen because it’s a classic sign and symbol of spring. First it’s unified with its grassy setting on mostly wet paper in a muted yellow, hardly visible. Pale brown is added next with a mostly dry brush, followed by bright light green around it. Note that the animal’s white front and ears are untouched by paint because light shines on its face.
The next wash contains more saturated bright green, applied just as quickly but on dry paper. A twist of the brush establishes specific blades of grass here and there.
Now a pale wash of blue suggests the first form shadows. Blue bleeds out into the grass behind the subject and is painted behind illuminated blades in front.
Fur is next roughly suggested, mostly dry-on-dry, and in its local color.
Another layer of blue shadow and darker, smaller, and more specific shapes are gradually added…
… and finally, darkest small shapes pull the painting elements together. While bunnies often munch on our gardens, they also provide food to many wild creatures. Happy spring!
