Rascally Rabbit

by Simon Bland / Oct 29, 2013 / Animal Rabbit Painting

A simple oil painting of a rabbit done with a limited palette and unfinished background.

9"x12". Oil on linen, mounted on panel. 2013.

This is the rabbit that ate all the Swiss chard in my garden earlier in the year.  I was able to get close enough to him to catch a couple of photos before he took off - with a tummy full of chard, no doubt.  I painted this very minimally, and stopped painting once I had all the important elements down.
