More On Miniature Bunny Painting

I worked a little further on "Fall Duncan" this afternoon (this is a close up). The handsome black bunny is Mr. Duncan Rabbit who will be staring in the new children's book I am working on called "Duncan's Magic Garden". I'm exploring techniques to capture that gorgeous black fur that Mr. Duncan wears, knowing that his ebony coat is full of subtle color. I'm layering colored pencil, then acrylic wash, then pencil again. I'll probably add a final layer of white acrylic highlights.

He's adorable Melody! And I love to do the cp/acrylic wash layering. It adds such interest!
