“White Rabbit” Canvas Painting

I’ve always wanted to create my own interpretations of the Alice in Wonderland characters on canvas but I wasn’t sure I could do them well with my bad hands.  I finally decided I would stop worrying and just try my best.  I’m glad I did because I really like how the white rabbit turned out.



For the whiskers I used jewelry wire and painted them white. I didn’t want the whiskers to be perfect so I bent and twisted a few.



Close up of the texture created with one of my favorite stencils and modeling paste.



For some reason on these canvases I purchased a while ago they stapled on the sides rather than on the back.  They were an eyesore so I decided to cover all the sides with modeling paste.  I just used my finger to spread it rather than a tool since I wanted it to be rough so it would add more texture.

Now that the “White Rabbit” is complete my goal is to create another character from the series before the year is over.  I’m not sure who it will be.  Maybe the Cheshire Cat or Alice herself.  What character would you like me to paint next?

    I love the evil lil bunny. He’s so cool! I vote for the cat next.

      Thank you!! I won’t start on a new piece till after the art-a-thon is done. Might wait till April or May to start it. The Cheshire Cat so far seems to be in the lead for the next piece.
