Capturing The Black Bunny Coat

(Click on the image to zoom in)

Well I believe I have captured the beautiful and rich coat of the bunny "Duncan Alexander". Duncan is the main character in Duncan's Magic Garden, a new children's book I am illustrating. This particular painting is one in a series of pieces I am doing specifically to acquire a technique for representing black bunny fur. Now on the those beautiful fall leaves!

Thanks Amy! I think the trick with your black bunny is layering. Lots of blue washes over the highlights. Good luck with your bunny, cant wait to see.
