Hello. This post is about a design that seems to be very popular with customers, and it is “Katie With A Bunny”. This is the little amish girl with the purple dress holding her pet bunny.
I have recently started going over some of my older designs and fixing things that I notice are not as perfect as I like them to be. Since I have improved with my painting along the way, I take the older paintings and just fix little things here and there.
Although I loved the painting, this painting always bothered me somewhat. Katie is standing at an odd angle, looking back over her shoulder, and I never liked the way I captured that. If you look at the newer version, I eliminated the shoulder hump and softened it. Much better.
The purple dress had odd creases in the sleeves and I changed those. I altered the apron and added more shadows and highlights. I added more color in her cheeks and defined the nose more. Now I really like her. I think that will do!
I think she is perfect now and on to the next one!
