Little Black Rabbit

Every garden should have its little black rabbit  - but they do come with a touch of mischief ..as every bright bunny should.

Rabbit in the garden!
Rabbit venturing off towards the garden


 Now who is this knocking 
At Cottontails door?
Tap tappit! Tap tappit!
She's heard it before.


And when she peeps out
there is nobody there, 
But a present of carrots 
put down on the stair.


HARK! I hear it again! 
Tap, tap tappit! 
Tap tappit! 
Why - I really believe it's a little black rabbit!

(Beatrix Potter)

Wildlife such as small British woodland animals (badgers, foxes, squirrels, mice, bats, deer, otters, wild cats, stoats, weasels - even wild boar, pine martens, beavers and, one day, lynx may return to the wilds of Britain!) and UK garden birds, butterflies and bees, along with ladybirds and dragonflies, add to the joys to be found in the garden, or just beyond, all year round.

Watercolours can be used to capture the beauty in the animal or plant subject using the fluidity of the paints.

Watercolours can be used in a variety of wildlife paintings for different effects based on creative preferences. For the traditional, realistic bird and wild animal paintings, dry applications of paint are built up slowly to create depth and form…
