A secret house hides in an old tree trunk. With an aged wooden door, the warm light inside shows through. The rabbit comes to the door in the middle of night, gently knocks on it.
“It’s me, rabbit.”
“Just a second, coming~”
This is rabbit’s house. It is going back to its own place.
Whoever inside is the rabbit’s family.
This is NOT the rabbit’s house. It is visiting someone else.
Whoever inside is the rabbit’s friend/comrade.
The door opens and the rabbit swiftly gets inside.
And the rest of the story is up to you. 🤣
My brain tricked me during this painting process. It was not about the tree bark or the rabbit or the bushes or the sign plate. It was all about the light strings on ground.
In the beginning I drew 5 continuous straight lines. Then I realized that there was a horizontal bar that blocked the light in between. So I added a shadow bar on ground. But soon I found out that the number of wood lumbers on top of the door was different than the lower part of the door which meant the light strings on ground had to be separated accordingly.
The other part was the lock and hinges of the door. I first painted two pieces of shadow on the door’s left side (my view). I thought they represented hinges. However I saw that the door’s lock was on left side so the hinges had to be on right side. At the same time, the door was locked so I should see the deadbolt on the left side and it should be aligned with the lock.
My brain hurt. 😂
I initially planed to write “No Trespassing” on the sign plate. But it is too long, 13 letters. Therefore I choose “Private”, only 7 letters.
I hope you enjoy this painting.
