Hello (waving) all of you out in BLOG land.
I have taken some progress pics here as a few people wanted to know about my colouring.
I have never had lessons just done a lot of practice and i rekon i have my technique/style perfected :)
The image i have used to colour here is from Ching-chou- Kuik and called "Gentle Heart"
I have used Arches watercolour smooth paper at 185GSM
(Click on any of the pics to enlarge)
1st pic I have used inktense pencils and water with a small paintbrush to make a bit of a cloudy background and add some colouring to the stamp. I try and mimic the colours from the papers i will be using in my final card/creation
Pic 2 You can see i have begun adding details to her hair with some polychromos pencils. Make sure you have a sharp tip on your pencil and away you go. Colouring darkest where the light naturally cast shadows.
Pic 3 shows me outlining her skin trying to get a feel where i want my shadows to go.I have also coloured the hearts in their first tone of colour after they had been painted with the inktense in the beginning.
Pic 4 I have blended with the lighter of my skin coloured polychromos and now adding more depth of colour on the hearts and shadows of the skin.
Pic 5 more blending out with the lightest skin coloured polychromos on the girl and hearts.
Pic 5 Shaded the wing feathers and added gold metallic polychromos to the flowers (why not)
Here it is all done
I used kaisercraft cardstock and papers. The heart dies are "lace hearts" die from spellbinders and i used some baby's breath art glitter by Barbara Trombley on the centre diecut heart.
I will be entering the card into the "January - world of magic" challenge on Ching-chou Kuiks digital stamps facebook page
