Who doesn’t remember Bugs Bunny! Well he is the star today for this National Day and for my last doodlewash for the month of April!  Tomorrow a new month start and a new doodlewash adventure let’s see what May will bring!

National Bugs Bunny Day is observed each year on April 30.
Bugs Bunny is the famous cartoon character best remembered for his roles in Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies produced by Warner Bros.  He is known  for his popular catchphrase “What’s up, doc?”  Bugs Bunny first appeared in a short film on April 30, 1938, and has since been enjoyed by millions of viewers.

Details about my doodlewash:
 I used a basic watercolor palette Artist’s Loft Fundamental watercolor pan set  this pan set is considered for beginners but I enjoy use it for the variety of colors and for sketching. I also used a  Pigma Micron Black Ink pen #005 over a Mix Media sketchbook!


A Special Thank You to Charlie!
