More On Duncan's Magic Garden

(Click on the close up to see the whole painting so far)

I am moving slowly along on my latest little painting. An 8"x10" mixed media - India ink, colored pencil, and watercolor, for the new children's book that I am illustrating:"Duncans Magic Garden". The above image is a close up of the piece and the final painting will include an ornate border which will frame our leading man, er...bunny. I have worked in the (ACEO) format (2.5" by 3.5") for the last five years, so adjusting to a dimension three times larger requires some getting used to. I will need to gain a new level of patience as each painting takes much longer to complete than my little ACEOs

Duncan and his bunny clan are known as the "Fabbitz"(as in the Fabulous Rabbits) Below is Duncan Alexander at his birthday bash with the Fabbitz clan.

Duncan's portrait was done as a miniature painting, also known as an (ACEO) and was part of a Triptych.
