Nesting Bun

Nesting Bun - student project

It took me a few tries to get this watercolor how I wanted it. I experimented with outlining and shading. I then found out that on one of my pictures the pencil wouldn't erase, so I had to start again :/ But, all in all it was a good experience and I feel like I'm developing this skill. It still feels a bit strange and unweildy to hold a watercolor brush, but I think I've improved because of this class. Thank you, Sandra!

I chose to do a rabbit, because I'm a lover of lagomorphs and have one that looks similar to this one. I also decorated the doll with Lepus, the bunny constellation.

Here are my attempts:

Until finally . . .

I got here (and tidied it up just a smidge in Photoshop)
