Step-by-Step Holland Lop Bunny Rabbit
Step 6: Grounding A Rabbit
Using the 1″ cat’s tongue brush, wet it with clean water, and use it to soften some of the harder lines within the face. Add another layer of the Dioxazine Purple and Cerulean Blue combination to the ears, then mix this color with some of the brown mixture already on the palette. For background colors, adding in colors that have already been used helps bring harmony within the painting. Mix the different browns with Dioxazine Purple to create a dirt ground for the bunny to stand on. Paint this color loosely around the bunny, creating a variegated (i.e. “wet-on-wet”) wash. Pay close attention when painting around the edges of the bunny. Paint the negative shape of the fur to create its texture.
