Just coloured: spring meadow bouquet

I have always said that Power Poppy illustrations are detailed enough that you could get away with just flat colouring with no additional shading; this is the result of testing that theory. I would happily put this on a card as is but, being unable to leave well alone, I will almost certainly tweak it… Continue reading Just coloured: spring meadow bouquet

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 25–28

Although the challenge officially finishes on the 28th, some people are continuing and doing the last two days. I did consider doing that but — looks around — my priority right now is to tidy up my craft room. In theory, a month of mostly Copic colouring shouldn't create much of a mess but... somehow...… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 25–28

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 21–24

The twelfth thirty-day colouring challenge is actually a twenty-eight-day colouring challenge to avoid overrunning the end of February. And that means that the last couple of round-up posts will be four days each... I've just worked on a couple of images this time: I paused on the first one because I couldn't decide what colour… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 21–24

And yes, I did add it to my to-do list, though I only just remembered to check it in time 🙂 More Copic colouring, but I am doing more refining of my Copic images now. I love colouring with… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 16–20

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 11–15

I really need to set myself a reminder to do these posts on time. I'm blaming not being able to shake the last of this cold combined with recovering from spending a lot of Wednesday at the dentist (nothing serious, it just took a while and was tiring on top of the tail end of… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 11–15

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 6–10

I'm always surprised when I don't miss a day colouring something during the challenge. I am terrible at actually getting around to most things I say I'm going to do — in fact, saying I'm going to do something is a pretty good way to ensure that it doesn't get done. Take this blog post… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 6–10

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 1–5

I love colouring, but sometimes other things take priority. Sometimes it's other arty things, which is good, but sometimes it's just day-to-day stuff combined with my ability to procrastinate at championship level. The perfect antidote for the latter is the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge: just that extra bit of motivation needed to get me… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 1–5
