  3. Base the largest egg with Golden Straw. Add details with Lavender, Tangelo Orange and Purple. Shade with antique Gold and a touch of Georgia Clay.
  4. Base blue egg using Baby Blue and add details with White and Tangelo Orange. Using Deep Midnight Blue, shade both sides, plus the bottom where this egg falls behind the other egg.
  5. Base the last egg with Gooseberry Pink. Add details with Golden Straw and Light Eucalyptus Green. Shade with Shading Flesh.
  6. On all eggs, remember to shade edges dark and retain the base color in the center area as the highlight.
  7. Rabbit: White. Shade with Payne's Grey. Load brush with White. Then, using the chisel edge of the brush, drag out fur around face and ears. Paint insides of ears with Gooseberry Pink, then shade with Georgia Clay. Eyes and nose are Black. Add White highlights. Use Georgia Clay to drybrush color onto cheeks.
  8. Grass: With a Rack brush and Hauser Dark Green, add grass at the bottom of the pot.

- Base with Golden Straw, shade with Antique Gold.
- Base with Tangerine, shade with Tangelo Orange.

I think this is so adorable. I did this project, and I can say the instructions for this are so complete and easy to follow. I used carbon paper to transfer the image. I just love the way mine turned out, though to be honest I am just a beginner painter, I am giving mine to my mom for Easter. I sure hope she likes it.

Hola Preciosa la maceta un lindo regalo para estas fiestas. Muchas gracias. Besitos.
