oil on linen on panel
I knew it as soon as I saw her, our one little rabbit who hangs out in the front yard. I knew I would want to capture the light coming through those ears. For this painting I started with an orange underpainting and I then tried using a limited palette... I was inspired by the posting of this artist, NJ Darling. She is also doing the challenge and I loved her cow painting.
I have to admit that I wasn't entirely successful in keeping to that palette...a little yellow seem to have found it's way in. But the next time I do it, I'm going to stick to the red, white, yellow ochre and black, because I was really amazed how many color combinations those few colors can create. I think I might need to get red oxide to really make it work...
Does anyone know more about that color?
