All Weather Friends is from the new release from Colorado Craft Company – a sweet little bunny with sweet little sentiments to go with it! I knew that would be the first one to color up!
I painted the background to have a loose rainy scene – layering several blues with lighter tones in the back, darker in the foreground, to create depth. Check it out:
The little bunny’s face makes me want to pick him up and hug him – and get his little feet out of the cold rain!
The white detail is added with Titanium White, which isn’t in my palette; I’ve started keeping a tube of it handy (and in my bag when I go out to do plein air) to add little sparkly highlights from time to time. It’s particularly good for water – and snow!

Just so cute
Love watching you work! My painting never looks like yours! I swear I saved all of the artistic genes for my youngest son who majored in studio art! I’m good a globs! Technical term for me!
Love that Gene Kelly movie! The zillions of different kinds of weather we have on our little planet is never not interesting to me… You’ve captured a soft, rainy day perfectly and a bunny is just the sort of person to enjoy that. Love the reflections. We had rain night before last, but it turned to ice on the trees, so everything was dipped in “glass” when we woke up yesterday morning… I was wondering how that could be captured with watercolors, and gave up – I’m still wondering…
