New painting ‘Rabbit in the dandelion field’

Hello:) Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

I just wanted to show you¬†my new painting¬†‘Rabbit in the dandelion field’

Rabbit in the dandelion field

When I was at work before Christmas, since the work was not very busy, I was doodling on my post-it note. Then an image of a rabbit in a dandelion field came up to my mind, so I doodled it quickly.

Later I decided to paint based on the image I doodled.

On a A4 sized paper I drew the rough outlines, and started painting with watercolours.

I used masking fluid to mask out the dandelion seed heads.

Waited over night for the masking fluid to dry and then I painted the sky

After the paints have dried, I peeled off the masking fluid.

I used an old tooth brush with white acrylic paint to paint more dandelion seed heads
