Thumper (10.5 by 11.5" water colour on paper) Collection of Artist
This small water colour is of a White-tailed jack rabbit named Thumper. If you read my artists statement I mentioned that as soon as I get an idea for a painting I also get the idea of what medium I am going to use to create the painting. This is a perfect example of one of those cases since I NEVER work in water colour, I think I did one other water colour painting when I was 16 as a school project and that was it. But when I got the idea to paint this rabbit by the name of Thumper it came to me that it HAD TO be created in watercolour. Since to me, if I think about working in water colour paint it seems so delicate just like this rabbit at her old age, delicate and fragile. If I used oil or acrylic for this piece I believe it wouldn't have anywhere near the same effect.
