I'm going to apologise in advance for the photos of this one - I took at least 20 trying to get a good shot but unless there's something seriously wrong with my eyes they all look terrible LOL!
Anyway, this is a double page spread from Johanna Basford's Enchanted Forest book done using mainly Prismacolor pencils with a couple of green Polychromos pencils and a couple of green Spectrum Noir pencils.
Today is the last day of school for Jess and Jamie (Matt finishes tomorrow) and Jess and I are looking forward to lots of quality colouring time together.
.......Jess and I love to sit and colour together but unfortunately that means not being able to sit at my desk with my lovely daylight lamp so pencil work and shading is out of the question. We seem to have spent the weekend sat on Jess's bedroom floor colouring which has meant sticking to gel pens and the Faber Castell connector pens so my colouring subject has changed as well as my style.
This first one is from the Dazzling Patterns Colouring Book by Beverley Lawson and is coloured using 5 Faber Castell Connector pens. I love these pens so much - smooth, not scratchy and with a lovely amount of ink every time!
This next one is from the Can't Sleep Colouring Book using metallic and glitter gel pens from The Works and a couple of metallic pencils:
I must admit to finding these really relaxing to do but I'm itching to get back to my pencils!!
After a busy couple of weeks (if you can call watching Wimbledon that?) I'm back with another coloured page from Millie Marotta's Tropical Wonderland book
Again I used Prismacolor pencils, Spectrum Noir pencils and a few of the only Polychromos pencils I have (greens)
Before I go, I had a comment from Diane asking why I arranged my pencils in the order that I do but I can't find any way to contact you Diane so will answer here. The Prismacolors were only arranged like that to mimic a downloadable colour chart I found online which makes it a lot easier for me to choose my colours quickly as I have it sat on my desk all the time.
Another one that's taken a while with just about everything thrown at it. This is from Relax With Art - Issue 2 using Prismacolor pencils, Spectrum Noir pencils, Works metallic gel pens. Works glitter gel pens and Sakura Moonlight pens:
