Fairies in Dreamland - this book belongs to......

I've been after the Fairies in Dreamland colouring book by Denyse Klette for a while and finally got my hands on it a few weeks ago.

This is the first page I've coloured, done using Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils and Marco Renoir pencils with a few gel pens.

Millie Marotta - cowfish from Curious Creatures

I didn't have a clue what to colour next so this was chosen for me by Jess. These are the cowfish from Millie Marotta's Curious Creatures book.

I used Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils for the fish and seaweed and Marco Renoir pencils for the background:

Magical Jungle - Title page

Here's my first colouring from Johanna Basford's new "Magical Jungle" book which I think may be my new favorite of her's.
I love the fact there's not so much "fiddly" colouring and details as there are in Lost Ocean - a lot better for my eyes!!

I used Caran D'Ache Luminance pencils, Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils and Prismacolor pencils. I also used a Conte a Paris pastel pencil.

Millie Marotta - Wild Savannah Lion

I still haven't decided what to do with the eyes of this lion so I'm posting it here now and deciding another time.

This lion from Millie Marotta's Wild Savannah nook was coloured using pencils from 2 of the Tombow Irojiten libraries - Vol 9 - dull tone and Vol 6 - light grayish tone 1.

Millie Marotta - Wild Savannah antelope

Wimbledon is over which means that I may get more colouring (and housework) done now!!  When I was working years ago I used to take 2 weeks annual holiday over the Wimbledon fortnight so I could sit at home and watch it all - of course that was pre-children!! 

Here are the antelope from Millie Marotta's Wild Savannah book - all done with Caan D'Ache Pablo pencils:
