Hey! Today I have just a colouring to share with you all I have to figure out what to do wit this image yet. But every month Make it Crafty has a challenge and this month the Make it Colourful challenge is feathers. I decided that I wanted to colour up Rosella in a Gum Tree, I printed it off on Fabriano Artistico 140lbs hot press watercolour paper, and coloured it up use my polychromos pencils.
This was not a fast process and probably took me about 4 hours of colouring time, everything has 4-8 coats of colour put on it to allow it to blend nicely, that seems to be the trick to these pencils is lots of light slow layers, but I love the look I get with the harder lead.
