Skippy, The Easter Bunny Gnome

Create Your Very Own Bunny Gnome!

Meet Skippy, the Easter Bunny Gnome! Skippy hails from Nomleyville and he loves carrots, but then, what bunny doesn't? He also loves Easter and likes to dress the part to hand out candy and colored eggs before the big day. One of his greatest joys is to wish everyone a "Hoppy Easter!"

This "paw-trait" of Skippy 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, framable art and gift tags as well as a fun journal page. *The project is actually broken out with two designs, one with the lettering and one without in case you want to add a personalized greeting.

The class was hosted on the Zoom platform and allowed participants the opportunity to ask questions in real time while working on their artwork. The videos have been edited but you will often hear comments and questions asked during the class.

Laure Ferlita

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 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!"
