Bunny painting tutorial

I hope you will enjoy this little bunny rabbit tutorial. I used Golden Open Acrylic paint but this can also be done with oil paints.
Would love to hear from you- have a great weekend!
1. Start outlining the bunny with thin paint
2. Begin blocking in shadows with pinks and purples
3. Shape up eyes with a smaller brush, I researched and studied several eyes first
4. Take time to mix a rich black, I used sap green, ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson ( or mix 3-4 of your darkest colors …..but don’t use black, mix your black, it is well worth the effort)
5. Paint dark black in the background-I wanted a strong contrast and thought the black would contrast with the white bunny
6, Add a layer of neutral creamy beige over the first layer of purple shadows
7. Mix a pretty light blue to accent and create more depth in the shadows
8. Use a nice liner brush to add that thin rabbit hair texture
9. “George”
