30 in 30 - Day 16 - Just One...

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?
