WIP Magician's Lionhead Bunny Rabbit Art Original Painting Work in Progress + May Sketches, Sketch 1, Big Eye Angel Fairy...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting I've painted the background for a magician's lionhead rabbit and started with the bunny.  I need to do an underpainting and then the fluffiness gets serious...  The rabbit's name is Maximillion and the reference is courtesy of his person David Reeves Payne.  There is also the magic hat, but that will come later.  I know I've painted a quite a few bunny paintings, but I love rabbits so, I think there's always room to add another member to my fluffle...  


This is a work in progress, but I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

==============================================


Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She has charming pigtails and a determined expression...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.  


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in May.  This is day 1.

This is a rough sketch.

Thank you most kindly Jan, Valerie, Christine, Jennifer, Jan, and Martin!

Valerie thanks, the bunny is actually going to be a grey, I haven't finished with his fur yet, I do love your bunnies...

Martin thanks, I don't paint every sketch though, I'm not sure if this is one I'll paint or not...
