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:

Just a quick update...

I am still around - it's just that I decided having not touched any of my cardmaking/scrapbooking stuff for well over 18 months it was time to get rid of it all. I've been busy selling stuff on Ebay and a Facebook group so hopefully I'll get more space for colouring.....and of course more room for pencils!!

Anyway I hope to be back soon with some colouring as I'm getting withdrawal symptoms!!
