I love little storybook images….and I love pretending I’m in a Beatrix Potter book with sweet little critters! I used a bunny I saw recently in a park as my inspiration to use browns and greys together, and provide some colored pencil tips along the way.

I kept the design out of the center of the card…the rabbit is about in the middle but her scene is off-center both horizontally and vertically. The bow helps pull the eye that direction too, and all that white space provides rest for the eyes.
Colors used….all Polychromos:
I used the same pencils on the inside, but left the mouse more brown in the fur, and used the purple for the dress and yellow instead for the flowers. Writing a sweet little “thanks for being a patron!” note right beside her will be perfect!

QUESTION: What is the base of the pencils you used and the advantage of using them over Prismacolor, Lyras (more of an oil base), etc.?
I have Prismacolor, Lyras, Derwent, and of course various watercolor pencil sets. .Adorable bunny card Sandy…..
Thank you in advance for an answer…I looked on Dick Blick, but do not see an answer to my question on the Polychromos.
Also, what do you blend your colors with other than other pencils?
