A very rare original background color key concept from an unmade Don Bluth Studios and New Line Cinema animated adaptation of the Velveteen Rabbit (1987). Featuring the boy holding the velveteen rabbit on a tire swing, the concept painting was created at the studio during the film's development. Don Bluth Productions uniquely used these concepts not only to develop the scene's color palette, style, and emotion, but also as storyboards to visualize the full story development. The painting was created by renowned Disney background painter James Coleman. Measuring 8.5"x11" overall and with the image area measuring 6"x8", the background color key concept is in very good condition with light staining around the border and edge wear from studio use and handling.
