Step-by-Step Holland Lop Bunny Rabbit
Step 5: Painting A Lifelike Eye
With the dagger brush, drop in more of the Burnt Sienna to add accents to the rest of the bunny. The aim of this open painting is simplicity, so there’s no need to add too many details. Taking the Escoda round brush (size 6), carefully add some Ivory Black mixed with Dioxazine Purple to fill in the eye (you can paint over the masking fluid if it’s dry). Clean the brush, and while it’s wet with clean water, lightly spread out the paint around the eyes to create a soft and furry look. Squint at both your reference image and painting to see the areas that need darker details, then leave this layer to dry.
