Beatrix Potter

I little late, I know. This is an image I recreated from "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny." I have been reading her stories to my young son and I have been impressed by her illustration style; she was really good with atmospheric perspective and a great degree of realism from observation. So I tried to incorporate some of that into my interpretation.

The other night, while I was reading "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny" out loud, I decided it sounded more appropriate uttered in the Old Queens English; which is a corny British accent on my part.
