Today's watercolour offering. She looked sultry until I added her whiskers. Now she looks startled. I enjoyed painting her, though. Compared with my paintings of a year ago, this one is a lot looser. I am daring to use splashes of unexpected colour which I find adds intrigue. I am also finding that leaving a little white paper along selected edges can add sparkle. I hope you enjoy her.

Here she was without her whiskers or background. Eat your heart out, Albrecht Dürer? I think not.

I must admit I prefer the whiskers Brent. She’s a lovely rabbit and I’m sure I saw her nose twitch. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. Xxx

How sweet. I have a perfect spot for her in my house. ☺️

She's utterly beautiful BrentW. She looks very coquettish with her charming whiskers! So accomplished. Maybe animals are your special talent!

Thank you, FredaE. My drawing skills have been much improved by following online tutorials, as had my knowledge and use of colour. It has been a wonderful journey, though -- and long may it continue.

A pencil drawing from an art class today, organised by Goldster. Maybe I should try animals for a while.

Best yet this one 😍 , as you said, the use of unexpected colour and the unpainted areas definitely elevate the picture

I love the colours you have chosen and you have given her such character. Beautiful.

Hi BrentW,

I like both-- the rabbit and chimpanzee. :-) You can start a series for animals to be drawn/painted. Fantastic job! :-)
