We do not have bunnies...

No, we do not have rabbits on the West Coast of South Africa, but they have been seen on some farms away from the coast. But of course there is always "pretending". I painted Lola and Vanilla really big and then posed the painting in the garden.

I was very happy with the fast laying down of colours. This piece was painted alla prima in a single session. The secret of  painted or photographed animals, is to give lots of attention to the eyes.

Giant Lola and Vanilla 500mm x 500mm Water-soluble oil on stretched canvas.

  1. It's a beautiful painting. You aren't leaving it outside are you?

    1. Thank you, Mary. No, cute as it looks out there, we are too close to the ocean and can never leave a painting outside.

    1. I really enjoyed your "fun" comment, Sherry! Yes they are scarily large, sitting there behind the shrubs! Lola and Vanilla are such loving sisters!

  3. I hadn't realised how large the painting was. In your garden for scale is a fun idea.
