May Bunny

This is another of my marker tests, this time depicting an animal. The colors you need for doing animal or people portraits are earth tones, lots of different shades of brown and grey with light orange or pale yellow and light umber. The manufacturers of these markers have finally figured this out and offer a whole panorama of these colors, out of which emerged this drawing of a rabbit, with its brown swirl patterned coat. I used both photo and life reference as this bunny appears in my back yard every day. The greens this month are at their brightest and the bunny can be seen munching the grass of its choice.

Markers and some ink on sketchbook page, 4" x 3 1/2", May 10, 2018.
