How to paint a watercolor bunny

There is something about animals that has always inspired me.   One of the first animals I ever drew was my dog sleeping soundly on our front step.   Shortly after drawing her – I suddenly wanted to try other animals and give each and every one of them personalities just like my lazy sleepy dog.   One thing led to the next and soon I was creating a menagerie of animals.  Which has led us to this moment – Today we are going to be painting Frank the Bunny and learning some crucial watercolor skills as we paint.
