A few of weeks ago I went to the British Museum and actually handled the original artwork of Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies. I got to spend the afternoon studying the artwork close up so I could get an idea of how she drew and painted.
In this video I show you my sketches and notes and then go through the process of sketching, inking and painting a part of an illustration from the book.
If you don’t know the story, here is video retelling of the Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies by Beatrix Potter. I should let you know that Soporific means something that will send you to sleep and improvident means being a bit careless and having too m much fun and not providing for the future.
