“Wooly Bully” started with a simple outline with thinned Golden Open acrylic.
I then added warm colorful shadows as a base coat.
Next I painted around the nose and eyes.
The liner brush helps add some pretty eyelashes and texture.
Wool on top of the sheep’s head was added with white paint- it shows up on the base coat I painted earlier.
Oh STOP! It just isn’t turning out like I planned! I really didn’t like my sheep’s face and nose so I waited
And waited
And waited
Finally, after more research, I grabbed a brush and my paint palette and gave “Wooly Bully” a face lift! Oh if I could paint my OWN face lift!!!
I wanted to show that even though some of you think that I make it look so easy to paint something beautiful, sometimes it just doesn’t work out, but I tried to make the best of it.
Hmmm….. Kind of like real life wouldn’t you agree?

This is a brand new style and technique that I am exploring, not the pretty little bunnies here. Please take a visual journey with me. Thanks for looking.

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”
