here is my version of the rivulet technique, Susan Avis Murphy, AWS see link for YouTube demo
Thank you to http://weisserwatercolours.com for the link, I really enjoyed the tutorial.although very different to my usual technique, I love the finished look, very soft, and found it to be a relaxing style to paint.
Rivulet technique Susan Avis Murphy Watercolour and pen Hare
My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow.
I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use.
I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.
This is gorgeous!!! Lance rocks! I’m gonna check out that video. Oh, I’ve wanted to paint a bunny for sooo long. 💛

I have been watching her video demos with much interest and am very glad to see it now with your hare. It worked very well indeed. She is remarkably generous with giving free demos on YouTube, for an AWS Member (they often charge $$, something to be expected), and is very gracious while demoing. thank you for posting this.
No problem, I am so pleased you were able to pass on your knowledge of the technique, and the link… I was happy with my first attempt, and even more so that it worked with a hare! Can’t wait to try it more, I have a few more hare sketches to try it with……… Createarteveryday, go for it, and paint those bunnies, join the hopping mad club I am in, lol xx
Does this technique have to have glass over it when framed?
Hi Patsy, I usually glass frame everything unless on a canvas, but I guess there is no real need to, I know some leave Unframed ….you could use a watercolour ground on a canvas first then do this technique, I don’t see why it should not work, however never tried myself. The only watercolour I have unframed is done with watercolour ground on canvas, then spray varnished when dry, it still looks good I think.
