Like many of us, I love to colour. And yes, I seem to collect various mediums to feed my hobby. Now anyone who knows me will know my preference is Copic markers. And I promise I will share tutorials using them. But today I thought I would just share colouring leaves with Spectrum Noir pencils.
I started colouring the back cover of my new colouring book and thought why not take pics to show you what I do.
So I chose these four pencils. I always choose at least 3 colours. A dark, medium & light but will often choose 4 or 5 to get a good effect.
This is what I've done so far and here's how I did it!
So I start with the darkest. I don't over think it when doing relaxing colouring. I just put the darkest where I want the leaf to be dark!
Then I use the next pencil going over the dark using small circular motion.
Then the next doing the same as above.
Then I go over it all with the very lightest. To get a smooth look I use a blender pencil over the leaf to finish.
And that people really is all I do!
When colouring with any medium I follow this same idea choosing 4 or 5 colours from dark to lightest. Some mediums like Copics I work light to dark while with pencils I work dark to light! There really aren't any strict rules. Go with what you feel suits you best.
Take care Zo xx
