I must admit I tried to find ways in improving my coloring skills and it is only recently that I am applying some things I have learned.
Anyway, here are 2 of the Art Noveau Fashion pages that I colored:
A. The Lady in the Jungle. I titled it as so because it is full of greens... I debated on coloring leaves as pink and red ones. Heheheh. I started with the image below deciding to have a pink blouse instead of pink leaves.
And this is my finished project... I struggled with this because I got tired of the green color.. and I don't know if the cold, wet weather we experienced for days affected the texture of some of the Faber Castell watercolor pencils I am using, Some of the leaves look rough even the purple skirt! :(
B. Lady in Pink Roses and Green. I got tired of the green colors from the first one I colored so I decided to make the twines brown even if it looks a bit dry. Hah! I enjoyed using light colors on this one. Again, some of the Faber Castell watercolor pencils look rough when I applied them on the flowers. I cannot "remedy" the damage done anymore. Coloring this was a breeze. It took me a few hours only.
I got tired with the ladies :p so I sorted my Coloring Fan set and decided to do this:
C. Fan with pastel-colored blooms
Since some of my Faber Castell Watercolor pencils got "cold" and rough :p I decided to use the lighter Crayola colored pencils I had. I only have 24 colors compared to the Faber Castell which is 48 +.
Before, I favored using the darker Faber Castell Watercolor pencils because I wanted bolder colors but the Crayola colored pencils allowed me to control the depth of the color better through lighter strokes and just by sharpening them.
I would say this is my best work yet because of the shading.. I hope to improve more as days go by and when coloring inspiration strikes.Yesterday, i started working with a butterfly design but I stopped it since I need to finish my cross stitch project that my mom has to bring with her next week.
