and to follow are some colouring progress pictures as I go along.
i have used Faber Castell Polychromos pencils to colour this image. However i did use Inktense watercolour pencil to colour the edge of the background.
I coloured her hair with
-naples yellow and
-light cadmium yellow
I usually start with the lighter colour to feel out the shaded areas then go over the shade with darker colours blending as i go and fill in any gaps where needed with the lightest colour.
Next i decided to colour the main tree showing.
-cadmium lemon yellow as my base colour all over
-light green was next but I was sure not to go too close to the edge
-pine green finished off the darker areas
i then went over the whole tree with a pencil stump just to give a smooth look.
That hat was next to get coloured and I used
-dark indigo for the darkest edges of the hat
-I think it was helioblue-reddish was used
-prussian blue was also used as the main blue colour
-black was to darken the edges
I had to finish the hat and i used
-deep scarlet red for the base making sure to leave white areas to depict light cast
-middle cadmium red was next to darken the shade
-dark red finished off the shading.
i again used a pencil stump to give a smooth finish.
