While that was drying, I chose my palette. I went with a combo that I love : a bright red, aqua and dark brown.
And then I was off! I used a leaf or fern stamp made in India that was given to me by a friend. I had the same colors for the backgrounds in both paintings, but not in the same places or not in the same size. I wanted them to be similar but different. This time, my Jackalopes have a beige color to them instead of white.
I even used my fingers for some of the background!
The boy Jackalope.
The girl Jackalope.
Here the Jackalopes are looking quite dapper and slowly becoming ‘mystic’.
In the end, I chose the Gemini symbol to put between their ears. I simply painted two different versions of that symbol.
