Surrealistic White Rabbit in Colored Pencil


WHITE RABBIT


My colored pencil rabbit is complete. It measures 18 x 24", larger than most of my colored pencil paintings. The forest is soft like I imagined. 
Whimsical.

Surrealistic White Rabbit in Colored Pencil

Layers and layers of colored pencil 
to achieve the color and value I want.




Of course, there is no white rabbit without a pocket watch.

I've set my white rabbit in the forest. I'm hoping the many layers of blended colored pencil will give a soft pastel effect.

Off to work now, there will be many hours of painting with these pencils.

Surrealistic White Rabbit in Colored Pencil

I've always wanted to do a surrealist painting. I admire Mark Ryden's work, so I used his style as inspiration. I've also wanted to do a large colored pencil painting, so I decided to incorporate these two ideas. 

The White Rabbit has been one of my favorite themes. 
But instead of an actual white rabbit, 
I am using a white rabbit mask. 



Sketches first. 
Draw selected sketch on tracing paper. 
Get it right, then transfer the drawing to bristol board paper,
now add COLOR . . .

COLLAGE ART JOURNAL

C O L L A G E

Wonderful medium ~  collage
Versatile
Inventive
Resourceful

The Art Journal 
- your art journal -
 can benefit from collage.

These are small, 8 x 10" pages. 

I am able to use the scraps of collage ephemera 
that I have accumulated over the years. 

I've collaged color copies of my own art, 
images from magazines, books, tags, buttons, 
motivational words that I love. 
Some of the images that are not of my work - I change by collaging more stuff on them.
Anything is fair game.

The hinges in the center of the page 
are color copies from a catalog. 
But they look real don't they?
