Background For New Miniature Painting

On this cool and rainy fall day I am working in the background for my new miniature painting "Fall Duncan" (sounds kind of German Octoberfest-ish don't ya' think?) I am working in a 4x6 inch format on velum Bristol which I have adhered to two sheets of illustration board to get extra thickness. I am also experimenting with media and support (the surface which I am using) Trying out some new Golden's Fluid Acrylics with layers of colored pencil. The subject is Mr. Duncan Rabbit who will be staring in the new children's book I am working on called "Duncan's Magic Garden" The leaf border will be full of the rich, deep Fall colors that surround me here in New England.

Duncan looks really good so far, good luck with the mixed mediums.
