Cute! - student project

This was really good practice and it was a lot of fun. Thanks for the class!

I really liked the shadows on the big unicorn and the variation in color on the leaves and berries. I wasn't a fan of the texture the color pencils left on this paper.  I used Arches 140lb cold press paper and M. Graham paints Hansa Yellow Deep, Quin Rose, Phthalo Blue RS, Burnt Sienna, Ivory Black, and some Indian Yellow on the cat and the red bunny. I used Neutral Tint on the bunny as well. Most of the black details in the little characters and flowers were done with Platinum Carbon Ink in a Lamy Safari pen. Highlights were with a white gel pen and Ph Martins Bleedproof White. I like using egg plates for mixing.
