Running Rabbit Monoprint

Another experiment with water-soluble pastel silkscreening, reworked with colored pencil. This was a bigger one, and the feet just didn't want to print--not sure if it was due to size or the pastel I was using--one of the colors, a pale green, didn't seem to want to print at all, maybe the binder was weird or something--so the feet had to be more heavily reworked than the rest.

I was going for a very clean abstraction kinda look. Ironically, the piece with more detail printed much more cleanly than the one with less. I'm not sure why that was--fluke, maybe! More experimentation is called for...

Got 3 prints off this one, one of which will be on e-bay at [link] . I like the running rabbit silhouette enough that I may have to do a watercolor or two of the same design...since I seem to be doing variations on a theme anyway!

I was trying to think of what this picture reminds me of for a few minutes, and I realized that it looks like the one scene from the movie Watership Down- when Fiver thinks that Hazel died and they play the song 'Bright Eyes' in the background, and there's glowing rabbits flying all over the place.

Lol, I'm taking a trip down memory lane... XD

This reminds me of "Watership Down". I love the color accents on his feet and ears. :D

Dare I say that he looks like the Black Rabbit of Inle's opposite? Okay, I did. I dunno if you've read Richard Adam's Watership Down, but you should. It's a wonderful novel, though a bit violent at a few parts, I'm sure you'd love it :aww:

I have to say your experiment was a success. :nod:
It does have a kinda abstract look to it...the reason I like it so much. :heart:!!!
Wicked job!!

Pretty!! (my nickname is Da Bunny, so anything with bunnies on it = awesome... but I love the coloring and the pose (is that the correct term for a picture of an animal?) on this one!!!!!!)

Reminds me of Watership Down. I loved that book.

Bunnies are always good. n___n You should do a set of prints of abstractions of different breeds or something. Those could really fetch something on eBay. You know how much bunny memorabilia is sold there? n___n;;
