I Have A Rabbit Problem

"Rabbit and the Red Dish," 11"h x 14"w, oil, ©2017 Jill Banks

I can't stop painting them.  This was set-up for a demo in the first day of my Still Life class ... this morning.  I didn't get around to much of a demo, putting students to work right past the sketch and grisaille stage.  But, since my Evening Paint sessions don't start until next week, I took the chance to paint after class.

You'll find many rabbits in the Still Life Gallery under works on my web site ... plus a couple in the Animals Gallery.  https://jillbanks.com/
