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.

Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?

  • I love this painting, Marilyn! You captured the atmosphere and gave the viewer the “charm” of Tuscany.
