Colouring My Line Art

wpid-wp-1427665808066.jpegThis line art was my project the other day. A lovely floral ACEO.

The next step was to colour it with my promarkers, now I do occasionally get asked what I colour with and how I colour as I add shading.

So this prompted a video, I set up the camera to record the whole colouring of the ACEO.

I had planned and prepared all the colours in advance as I wanted to just colour and not spend time thinking about what colours I needed next. wpid-wp-1427819032919.jpegI chose a dark mossy green blend for the vines, a couple of green leaf blends, a blend of browns for the tree branch, yellows and oranges for the flower centres and purples and pinks for the flowers.

In total I had 17 colours, the entire colouring took around 50 minutes (the video has been sped up) I haven’t provided a colour list but keep an eye on the library as I upload some of my blend combinations there.
