Easter Bunny Wreath
Learn to use white watercolor with confidence!
Who loves bunnies?!
This sweet bunny is here to wish everyone a very "Hoppy Easter!" Bunny seems to be a bit bashful and is hiding inside the wreath or maybe she's just waiting for a chance to nibble on the wreath! Of course, just look into those innocent brown velvet eyes, and you just know she would never do such a thing!
The wreath is customizable in that a name could be added where the lettering shows Hoppy Easter or the lettering could be left out all together. The wreath is created using 3 different colors of ink—light gray, dark gray and sepia.
The wreath decorations and foliage along with the bunny is rendered using pastel watercolors and gradients. If you don't have a bunch of pastel watercolors, no worries—all you need is a tube of white titanium watercolor and you're good to go with your regular watercolors! While it is possible to paint pastels without the addition of white, this class will be taught using white mixed with the other pigments normally found on our palettes.
This design makes great cards, table place-cards, framable art and gift tags as well as a fun journal page.
Laure Ferlita is an accomplished watercolorist residing in sunny Florida. Watercolors, nature, travel, painting on location, sketching for the joy of it, and most especially, color, are her passions!
Vibrant color can be found in almost any subject and its shadows. It is her joy to bring those colors to life on paper with some paint and a little water. For many years, Laure worked as a graphic designer, so you will most likely see a strong graphic element in her work.
She started sharing her joy and love of sketching on location over at ImaginaryTrips.com in 2009 and has helped many "travelers" to find their artistic voice since then.
“Watercolor, for me, is the perfect sketching medium." Laure says. “It provides ease of use, quick color saturation, and clean up is a snap and really, you don't need much equipment. After you move past the hype of how difficult watercolor can be, you find out how much fun it is to get out there and actually create on location. It's way too much fun!"
