I've long harboured a desire to paint a stylised, fantastical portrait of a young woman. The only sticking point was how to present and compose the end result. Then one day, I had the idea of plonking a white rabbit down onto her head - because, well, why not? - and the result is the picture you see here! I really enjoyed doing this one; so much so, there may be more to come... To get her lace collar looking right, I used a variation on the 'Sgraffito' technique to scribe into the paint and I love the surprised look on the rabbit's face, as if HE didn't expect to be here! One of those pictures that was a joy, from beginning to end.
