Bunny and Basket 1 - A Work in Progress

Today I pulled out this painting that I have been working on for a while (see posts on 27 May 2014, 06 January, 22 February and 09 March 2016).

First I worked on the slats on the basket with various mixes of  French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna trying to show a little of the wood grain on them.

While that was drying I darkened the shadows on the vest on the bunny with a little alizarin crimson.

Then I went back and worked on the weaving of the basket with mixes of raw sienna and burnt sienna.

Using burnt sienna, raw sienna and French ultramarine blue I started working on the shadows of the binding at the top of the basket.

I will post this painting at a later date once the basket has been completed.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.
