Rabbits for Easter and a Rabbits Coloring Page
Topic: Watercolor Class

Try your hand at drawing some rabbits for Easter (or Spring). For reference you can print out my rabbits drawing inspired by Beatrix Potter. Rabbits Drawing Page or Coloring Page.

Besides writing and illustrating the Peter Rabbit books, Beatrix Potter was a sheep farmer, watercolorist, naturalist and conservationist. You can see some of her watercolors at Beatrix Potter Society.   

Find more rabbits and Spring coloring pages at Catinka's Maine and Animal Coloring Pages

This week the kids did rabbits for Easter. We used my follow-along-method. These are my demonstration paintings, imperfections and all. I paint a few strokes on a large sheet of newsprint tacked up and they match stroke-by-stroke as best they can. You can see the kids' work at my new Flickr site. Once there, click the 'kids art' set or use the keywords "kids art - rabbits" to see their rabbit paintings. View my Flickr site.

Flickr is a photography site. Since these are not photos (photos of art though) they may not let them be seen by the public. We'll have to see. Please let me know if you have trouble. And feel free to use the comment feature here, or there!
