First up, the beautiful Kwiaty Baroku arrived recently and I decided to make a start on it.
This is a book of images adapted from the baroque engravings of Jacob Kempener.
Of course I envisaged the background being much darker than this! I started out with indigo pencils and then went over it with the darkest blue pastel I have. I may yet fiddle with it some more. We'll see!
The rest of the week was spent colouring from my main book, Fantastisches Malbuch (review). I'm now close to the end of the book and it'll be finished in the next two weeks.
First up is this image from one of the jigsaws. The interesting bit was the glass cupboard in the middle of the image -
Next up are these two images from his picture book, Falling Angels. The second image s only partly from the book.
The next image is fantastic to colour and this gave my brown Inktense a workout -
This one that comes next in the book, I coloured last year for the review and is from the cover of Tower to the Sun -
This one is another from The Last Alchemist -
And finally the red box from How to Live Forever. This one was really tricky because the image was very faint in places.
See you next week, probably.
Some background - I've never had an art lesson in my life and I consider myself an average colourer who just puddles along, trying to complete books, enjoy and challenge myself. These colouring posts are really a record for me, primarily, of what I coloured and some background to the colouring. I doubt that anyone will learn anything from them so don't expect a tutorial! Just me, rambling about my hobby!
Books that I'm colouring …..
