Bunny and Basket 1 - A Work in Progress

So far I have not seen anything of Patch, even though I have been calling her each morning and leaving food in some of her sheltered places, hopefully she will return one day.

I  can only hope that she went to one of the other nearby farms and found a home there and is still alive and well.

While going through a box of smaller paintings I came across this one that I had started a couple of years ago (see post on 27 May 2014).

The basics were in place and I need to take a little time to sketch in more of the details on the bunny and the basket to be able to paint it accurately.

With alizarin crimson I painted in the nose.

Using burnt sienna I started to put in the stalks on the pussy willows and for the shadowed side I added a little French ultramarine blue to the brown.

I will post this painting at a later date once I complete the pussy willows.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
