Sketched rabbit onto a prepared background and a bit of collage …The long Summer holidays have started for the French kids. Parents know only too well that inevitable expression “I am bored” but in fact boredom enhances creativity so it is not all that negative !
It is time for children to run around (preferably not at home) but in fields or parks or gardens instead of staying in front of a computer or TV….
This painting was the result of a watercolour challenge proposed by Cathie Van Der Stel from the Hangar Art Centre . You can find the original photograph and the different interpretation on the French Riviera Art Facebook page.
Transparency and water movement are always tricky and I decided to tackle both without the help of masking fluid to reserve the whites : the technique consists of leaving the white from the paper and paint around it.
