Bunny Bears

Bunny Rabbits? Or Teddy Bears? Maybe one is a bunny and the other a bear? Anyway I love both and drawing both. It all started on a hot sunny day last Monday. Doodled some flowers and what looks like clouds and sun rays with oil pastels in yellow and orange. Then a wash of blue metallic acrylic paint over it so the patterns still show through.

Found bits of scrap origami washi paper and a pink heart cut-out lying around so decided to make some use of them by gluing them around the paper. Then brushed a thin layer of gesso over the whole thing, making sure the underlying still showed through.

Once the gesso dried, I took some watercolour pencil and drew a big bear on the right hand side and realized oops wrong side! And in the wrong position as well to continue with drawing the rest of the body. I quickly had to decide something! So I drew a rabbit on the left hand side. All this was purely an accident! For further chibi-ness I added little bodies on the lil creatures and surrounded them with hearts and flowers.

Took 4 different shades of green and some white acrylic paint and started painting around the subjects. I love that emerald effect! With a wet brush I spread the colours from the watercolour pencil for the drawings. Then added the eyes in blue and brown along with other finishing touches with some ink.
