Work in progress or parallel worlds

One of the wire rabbits of my earlier post started off as a pencil drawing, just to explore ideas and lines to sculpt in wire. I never bend the wires following exactly the traces of a drawing, normally I use it just for inspiration.

So, while the wire sculpture was about to be created, I went on playing with the drawing, adding basic colors and contrasts to it.

Step by step the drawing took on it’s own character, and the rabbit on the drawing ended up living in two parallel worlds, a 3 dimensional, linear one and a 2 dimensional colorful one – but they still are related, a bit like distant cousins.

Do dogs like rain? Most of the dogs I know prefer dry weather… The dog I drew with ink recently, had a certain uncomfortable look to it, so I decided to put him into a raincoat.

I think it’s clearly influenced by a Weimaraner, I did some portraits of a very handsome one during the last weeks and it seems I was still drawn to the expressive face this breed has.
