Alice in Wonderland SnipPet Style!

Some of you will remember the Cheshire Cat I created during my wonderful week at the John Campbell Folk School. Well, i finally carved out some time to make a White Rabbit using the painting techniques I learned that week. I wanted the rabbit to be in the same style as the cat....bright, shimmering eyes and a wide smile with similar coordinating color scheme and details. I think i am getting the hang of using many sheer layers of acrylic washes and using pastels for shadows and accents. It really gives great depth and dimension to the figures.

I usually have NO problem parting with my artwork, but the cat has been a different story. I put so many hours and thought into him, so I sort of needed him to stay with me for a little while. But I think I am ready for him to find a special new home. I will be listing both the cat and the rabbit in my etsy shop soon. They are going to be part of a new category...a "Signature SnipPet Collector Series" or something to that effect. I am excited and anxious to keep adding to this line of characters.

So, here they are! The White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat on their way to a fabulous tea party!!

I love them!! I get their catalog book and drool over the classes. Did you go by yourself? What a journey....I am actually taking a class from Art N Soul soon, they just sent me a challenge...a tea pot and the theme is Alice in Wonderland. Mind has been racing with thoughts and sketches. Your cat though.....is superb!!!
