Man, Boy and Rabbit

7 Jul

man and boy

Walking over the hill above Bracelet Bay, Mumbles a couple of evenings ago with Husb and small Nephew, we saw lots of wild rabbits quietly munching away. Husb and Nephew stopped for a few minutes to gaze at a young bunny; the little ones don’t seem particularly afraid of people. The Boy tends to copy Husb and their stance was very similar – he’s learning to be a man. So cute. On their left is a sweep of a small tree that’s been sculpted by the wind. Drawn into my A5 cloth-bound sketchbook that I’d prepared with some ripped brown parcel paper, stuch on with Pritt stick. I used Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens in sepia and a touch of black and white conte crayons.

      Thank you – I had to do it quickly – the rabbits soon bounded off

    The drawing is good on its own merits, but I loved hearing the backstory of the mirrored stances.

      Thanks. He’s very obviously trying to be a little man now. It’s really sweet.

      Thank you – sometimes when you have so little time, you’re forced to focus on the essentials
