the Westbury Rabbit


the Westbury Rabbit, originally uploaded by Dru Marland.

Here's a bit of fun, based, of course, on Eric Ravilious' painting.... before I coloured it in using the brightest pencils in my drawing box, I scanned the outline so that I could play with it digitally. I like the pattern flood option that you can do with Paint Shop Pro, and am just starting to play round with it, with the obvious consequent risk that it's a bit OTT. But I like the way that Helen Binyon used texture in her illustrations for the books she did with her sister Margaret.
