Painting white things is really fun and challenging.  For this painting, I placed a white rabbit stuffed animal in a white box, and lit it from two sides: one a warm light, which casts a cool shadow, and one a cool light, which casts a warm shadow.  So in this white on white painting, the colors come mostly from the shadows cast by the lights.

I enjoyed this challenge so much, that I’m planning more work featuring “The Woobie,” as well as more white on white paintings.  Luckily, the Woobie has a little family, so they could keep me busy for awhile.

The value of a work of art is the flight that the observer takes from it.

  • Wow that’s lovely. You’ve done a great job of capturing the textures, I really like the silk edging on the blanket.
