White Rabbit Syndrome

watercolor on paper
Here lately I've felt like the white rabbit in the Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass book(s)!  It seems I'm always trying to catch up!

Here is my latest painting (except for a watercolor class exercise) and I think I like it.  At least it's a bit different from my usual!

I haven't finished the portrait of Tristin but I did work on a bunny painting for my nephew and niece who are expecting.  They purchased a dry sink from an antique store that had already been painted with bunnies that they wanted to use as a changing table. So my niece wanted me to do some paintings for the walls of the nursery to go along with it.  The bunnies on the table were somewhat folk-art style and painted in what looks to be acrylic so I used acrylic to paint the following (& y'all know how well acrylics and I get along!!!)

Acrylic 8x10"

But this went fairly well except for the mottled coat of the gray rabbit which was somewhat difficult to achieve.  I think I'm going to have to get with my friend, Sue (PencilPix blog), and see how she does the ticking in some of her animals! 

I think this is much like the examples in the photo of the dry sink my niece sent but it doesn't look much like a painting for a nursery so I'm going to paint others in different styles with different backgrounds (all of the bunny paintings on the table had a dark floor and background).  She wanted several paintings and if I do different ones, she can choose what she really wants.

I'll post them all here and let you know what she ends up choosing!
