No, not another post about coloring! Just indulge me one more time, dear reader.
|This took up way more time than I anticipated.|
Black markers for the flowers, and colored pencils (Faber Castell) for the background.
I felt that the plate had way too much colors already, so left the leaves uncolored.
|Decided to go twee with this one|
So lots of pastels such as pinks, purples, and baby blues
And green, lots of green. Green is my color of the moment.
|This is, like, 99% complete.|
A friend pointed out that I missed a flower outline (upper left).
And then I noticed that I left out a few purple feather lines as well (bottom).
|R. challenged me not to use any green in my next Secret Garden plate.|
So fall colors on this one. Although we don't have that season here in Manila. Hehehe.
This plate made me fall in love with Derwent colored pencils.
|Used both Derwent and Prismacolor pencils for this one.|
The bolder colors are Prismas, which have cores that are too soft for my taste.
The Derwents have just the right balance.
