IF: Rescue

Finally getting in an Illustration Friday painting. How about Spring is something I DON'T want to be rescued from? And neither does this little chick. In what other season do you get to paint eggs and eat big chocolate bunnies? Had the windows open today and I could smell the sunshine! It was glorious.

This is my first time using hot pressed watercolor paper. I like Arches blocks but hadn't experienced the hot press. Love it! So smooth, I feel like blending went so much better. Especially like the chick's cheeks. It just looks so soft to me. So glad I got around to trying out that paper.

I think I'll try Fabriano watercolor blocks to get that bright white!

Very cute and Easter-appropriate! It's good to see another artist still doing it old school--actually painting!
