Colouring Practice With Pencils
Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend and Valentine's Day! We actually have sunshine here today!
As a lot of you will know, my colouring skills can leave a lot to be desired and I have tried all methods, bar, Copics, as they are too rich for my blood! I have tried, watercolours - in various forms, from Peerless, to cheap, kids paints, markers of all types, from SU to Memento, through to the Stabilo 68 markers that everyone uses. All my attempts come out rubbish.
The only thing that I have a modicum of success with is pencils - ordinary, colouring pencils and watercolour pencils - from cheap, kids pencils through to Derwent Coloursoft, and pencils are the only colouring medium I seem able to control any sense! So, I have given up on other methods and have decided to perfect the one medium that I have had some success with and stop stressing about all the others!
So, here is today's effort.
I also tried some ombre stamping with the sentiment, but think I needed two colours further apart in hue, as it just looks like I messed up with the stamping!
Thank you for your visit today! Have a lovely evening! Hazel xx
