I love colour!

I’ve sure been slacking off when it comes to writing in my blogs. But, then, that’s just the way I am. I go on binges of this, that and the other thing. So, lately I’ve been deeply immersed in colouring with my Copic markers. I’ve discovered a few artists whose work has captured my interest: Christine Karron, Dinny Sidik and Mariola Budek. Here are some of the Dinny Sidik images that I’ve coloured so far. I need so much practice on skin, especially the cheeks and shadows and these images are perfect for that.

Here are a couple I coloured by Mariola Budek:

That’s it for now, but I will be back with some of my Christine Karron images. She draws amazing fairies and her special little guy, Benny Blue. See you next time!

Colouring, in the Christmas mood!

I bought a new gray scale colouring book by artist, Ruth Sanderson, called Santa’s Christmas. I always get into the Christmas mood in November, so this is the perfect colouring book for me. Here are the pictures I’ve coloured, so far.

These gray scale images are so easy to colour and the results are awesome. Try one, you’ll be surprised!

More Benny Blue!

I’m back with a few more Benny Blue images that I coloured this week. By the way, you can buy the Benny Blue colouring book (paper version) or the downloadable PDF version by Googling¬†Christine Karron.¬†She is a brilliant artist, so check out all of her images and I know you’ll fall in love with then. P.S. I’m not getting paid to say this I just love Christine Karron’s work. I colour all of my images with my Copic markers and add highlights with a white gel pen.

I forgot to draw in his whiskers before I photographed him…ooops!

Details, details, details!

When I’m in my studio, Copic markers in hand, favourite tunes playing, I’m at my most relaxed. I don’t think about anything other than my colour and my music. We all need times like that. I’m retired, now, and I’ve finally gotten the hang of that thing called, “relaxation.”

Here is a gray scale image that I coloured, yesterday with my Copic markers and a dash of white gel pen. It’s loaded with tiny little bits and pieces of things that need colour. The colours are bit crazy, and it’s certainly not my best work but, oh well! It was fun and relaxing. You should try one, I bet you’ll like it!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll drop in again, soon!
