Imagine. Create. Enjoy.

Hello loves!

Hope everyone is following community guidelines and hanging in there. I apologize for this Easter piece posting so late. My anxiety has kind of gotten the best of me over these past couple of weeks and I've not been arting as much as I should.

My bunny actually turned out much different than I envisioned in my head, but that's the way it goes. I'm still pretty happy with it.

I started with a piece of Strathmore mixed- media paper and brayered several pastel colors all over.  I then used the same colors to add several stencil designs from Artistcellar (Tiles from the Blocks Series, Sea Fan from the Coral Series, & Amiens Plan from the Cathedral Plans Series).

I then drew a quick outline of a Bunny in pencil, using Google images for a reference.  

I divided my Bunny into several sections and added doodling with colored pencils. Like I said, my mind has been a little frazzled lately and I just felt like doodling simple shapes in pretty colors.  Bunny wasn't popping away from the background so I painted a light grey fluid acrylic around the perimeter. Using an Inktense pencil, I outlined the image and added some water to blur the pigment. Some simple grass with strokes of gesso and light colored pencil and Viola!  Pastel Bunny is complete.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you and your family and friends are safe and healthy.
