I thought I’d show you an image I have coloured following along with Julia Alterman in her colouring mini series here – http://just-one-more-card.com/2016/02/coloring-an-entire-image-with-pencils-part-1/
Here is the image finished it is a different one to Julia’s but I thought it was similar. This image is a stamp from Crafter’s Companion Scruffy Little Kitten – Aggie
Here is the first step of colouring in the skin. It does look very dark but will be fine when the rest is coloured in. I have used watercolour card as this gives some tooth for colouring with pencils.
Here is the image with her dress coloured. Note the way I have drawn in extra folds and created highlighted areas. I am trying to improve my colouring this year and have started to take some classes from Kit and Clowder, (see the badge in the side bar). This is a company Julia rates on her blog.
Thanks Julia for the inspiration. I hope I have inspired some one else to give colouring with pencils a go. It is a long process, but great to do in front of the TV on these cold winter nights.
