Marker Geek Monday time! I’m in the midst of moving house, so I’m swapping between colouring images and colouring walls at the moment. Fingers crossed, I’ll be all settled in to a new craft room before the end of November. Wish me luck!
Today I thought I would share some details for images I have been colouring and sharing over on Instagram recently.
Firstly, here’s gorgeous little Tiny Townie Hattie loves Halloween.
I stamped Hattie using Ranger Archival Ink in Sepia on Strathmore Toned Tan paper, before colouring her using Faber-Castell Polychromos coloured pencils.
Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils Used:
Skin: Light Flesh, Medium Flesh, Cinnamon, Dark Flesh, Ivory Hair: Venetian Red, Indian Red, Caput Mortuum, Terra Cotta, Caput Mortuum Violet, Ivory Hat/Cloak: Black, Warm Grey II, V, VI Dress/Hat Band:May Green, Earth Green Yellowish, Olive Green Yellowish Buckle/Broom: Burnt Umber, Dark Chrome Yellow, Sepia, Dark Naples Ochre, Cream Broom Handle: Burnt Ocher, Raw Umber, Ivory
Secondly, here’s my pencil version of Uptown Girl Kitty loves Halloween.
I stamped this stylish trick-or-treater using Ranger Archival Ink in Sepia on Strathmore Toned Tan paper, then coloured her using my new Derwent ProColour coloured pencils. I will be posting my thoughts on these pencils in the near future, as soon as I get chance to play a little more!
Derwent ProColour Pencils Used:
Skin:Flesh Pink, Salmon, Pink Madder Lake, Mars Violet Hair: Nutmeg, Autumn Leaf, Sunset Gold Ears, Tail etc: Ivory Black, Gunmetal, Blue Grey Dress: Grape, Imperial Purple, Blue Violet Lake Pumpkin: Yellow Ochre, Spectrum Orange, Autumn Leaf
TIP: Should you try colouring on a kraft/tan paper or any other different shade from the usual white, I highly recommend creating a swatch/colour chart on the same paper first. That way you can see exactly how the colours behave.
If you’d like me to cover a specific topic here, do let me know by leaving a comment, and I will see what I can do! Bear with me for the next few weeks though, as I am in the process of moving house and will be busy for a little while setting up my new craft room!
