Came across these bunny sketches from this Spring, while cleaning a bit of my studio yesterday, and thought I’d like to share them. Animals ’round here move so fast, but I really want to draw more native wildlife, rather than the things I’ve drawn so far, such as cherry blossoms, peach leaves and rabbits. Rabbits do NOT belong here in Australia, no matter how cute they happen to be! Maybe I’ll start with native plants, and work up to drawing the skitter-ish animals!
I drew this page while making my porridge (oatmeal) one morning. Just grabbed the nearest pencil and paper, and actually got a few little gestures completed of the three baby rabbits making their rounds in the front of the house, where new shoots of tender grass were appearing.
I’ve yet to draw the birds taking a bath, which I’ve seen so many times; since by the time I grab my art supplies, the flighty birds have wised up and vanished.
I’m going to make a portable system of small sketchbook and pencil, to take with me on walks and sometimes for around the house and yard!
Enjoy these, and I’ll give you a rest from deep and meaningful essays..for today! Haa!:
