Slouching - Desert Cottontail
Slouching (Desert Cottontail) 10x14” Pastel.
A few years ago, when I lived outside of Phoenix, this desert cottontail used to come visit my backyard and lounge in the shade. He never ate any of the treats we left (probably a good thing) but he did always position himself to watch us through the window. Either he really liked being photographed or he thought we were just as interesting. Since then, most of the desert cottontails I draw that are laying down, are portraits of him. I like to think he’s still out there somewhere posing for another artist to be inspired by for years to come.
This pastel painting is available unframed and it ships flat. Colors vary from screen to screen, but the dominant colors are blue, tan, yellow and burnt orange.
