  • A Girl and Her Bunny : Completed Portrait


    girl and bunny kiss love pet portrait by Leanne Wildermuth

    I’ve just completed Stacie and Foo Foo (aka A Girl and Her Bunny) – what a sweet portrait this turned out to be, with the bunny love and the feelings I get when I look at this precious moment!

    Of course I gave my own Dusty bunny some love while I painted, too, and she also helped as a reference when I painted Foo Foo’s nose. It’s always good to have a live model on hand. (Need to remember this for future paintings of loveable furry things that I do not have in my family yet.)

    It’s been a while since I painted a person in oils, and funny thing – I used the exact palette I always use. Natural skin tones can be achieved with just five colors – yellow ochre, magenta, white and sap green for the majority and the deepest shadows, lashes & brows were done using raw umber tinted with magenta. I’ll be painting a couple more humans here in the next few weeks, so I’ll get plenty more skin time very soon!

    Enjoy, and have a great weekend! I hope you’re healthy and keeping your snouts and hooves clean!

    (snort, snort… swine flu… get it? We’ve got it!)

    Love this captured moment. Something very sweet and unique about it. You don’t exactly expect a bunny…
