Building bunnies and banners.
Here's a closeup.
I also bought a beautiful Chinese Lantern plant to put outside my front door.
I just love these tiny lanterns. They're going to come in very handy for painting my greeting card, Esmeralda and the Spooky Boo. She's running under a big branch of them in the drawing. The owl in the corner wearing a sheet and saying Boooo instead of Whoooo, is the spooky boo.
Just a handful of some of the colours I'll be using. I know I'm pushing it trying to have the card ready for Halloween but this is really a warm up for the book cover, Tale of the Black Mamba. And the candy corn banner was a warm up for this card. I get so jittery when I'm starting a new painting.
