My take on the rivulet technique

I am really enjoying this rivulet technique with watercolour, this is my take on the background, which I thought was a bit of fun, the brown hare is not finished, but I wanted to post it as I am so excited about the effects you can achieve with the background using the rivulet technique, if you want to try it,please go to my blog post 31st May 2015 (archive) rivulet technique, and click on the YouTube link for a wonderful demo. I hope if you try it you like it as much as me?. I will finish him off today, adding some more hair and light and dark tones, sort out the eyes and add the all important whiskers.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

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.
