Moon Rabbits Painting

Moon Rabbits

So there are various folklore of Rabbits living on the Moon.
In China the Rabbits make an elixir of life in a mortar and pestle.
In Japan and I think Korea; the Rabbits make Mochi, which is pounded glutinous rice.
The whole thing is hard to describe but i liked the imagery.

The Moon Rabbits is another large watercolor painting at 20 inches by 28 inches.

Middle is my finished sketch
Bottom is the final painting

I had an idea about doing the stars by using a toothbrush and various colors of gouache. I was scared to death because after spending so much time painting it at that size, I wondered if I was going to ruin the painting. Luckily the piece turned out better that I had hoped.
