Happy Easter! [Colored Pencil Bunny]

I fell in love with colored pencils when I first started drawing (6? years ago). One of my first drawings was of a bear, and after that I did several animals, including this bunny. I think I felt animals were easier subjects because the pencil strokes were the fur! Eventually I learned about blending colors (and using the side of the pencil instead of the tip) for a smoother look and to create colors that weren’t in my box (see the terracotta pot). It’s been a while since I picked up those pencils, maybe it’s time to try them out again. Happy Easter!
