The Art of Spring: Bunnies

The first Art of Spring project was bunnies. If you've followed my blog for a while now, you know I LOVE bunnies. I couldn't wait to get started!

I showed you some of my sketches last week - here's the finished spread in my art journal:
Bonjour Mr. et Mme. Lapin!
Junelle Jacobsen, the instructor for this workshop, has a style that's a bit "messier" than mine. I really like the effect though, so I tried to add more sketchy elements that I normally would. Similarly, I started with a very simple painted background and added the texture afterwards with leftover paint. It ended up being a little calmer and more spring than a really busy background would have been.

I love love LOVE this spread - I can't wait to see my whole Art of Spring art journal fill up! Next up: ducklings!

Supplies used: Golden paints (burnt umber light, raw sienna, mars black, Indian yellow hue, hansa yellow medium, sap green, titan buff, cerulean blue deep), Venetian acrylic gesso, Amsterdam paint (permanent red violet), Rock paint (phthalo blue), stamps (chevron, circles), Sharpies (black pen, yellow and magenta fine point)
