Christmas is only a week away and I’m so behind. I haven’t bought the presents for my family or myself and I still haven’t put up my tree. Your probably thinking that’s not a big deal, except that I have a 20 month old that knows something exciting is happening at the moment. I’m just dreading putting up the tree after she took one down at the shops the other day. We also had my partners birthday today, so now that is over with we can focus on getting ready for Christmas this week.
The only thing I have done to get into the Christmas spirit is colouring this Arctic Snow Leopard from Kerby Rosanes’s Imagimorphia. I am so in love with this book. Since I bought it, it is the only book I’ve coloured in. I will post all the picture I have coloured so far soon. But first I wanted to show you this one I just completed.
Its done in Prismacolor Premier pencils, pastel and a White Uniball pen. When I was colouring it I did find there wasn’t as much opportunity as I would have liked to have add more green and red, but overall I’m happy with it. I haven’t seen this picture coloured by any other colourist, so I was excited to see the end result.
I just recently bought Prismacolor pencils. I love them. They blend beautifully and the colours are really vibrant. The only negative I have about them is that their is not many brown tones. However, there is a great variety of just about every other colour, many of which are not available in Faber Castell Polychomos range.
The front page of Imagimorphia is part of the same picture that I coloured. This was actually the first page that I coloured in this book with Polychomos pencils. I didn’t realised when I first started this page that it was an arctic theme, so I coloured the leopard in more traditional colours. I used a limited colour scheme and I am really happy with the way it turned out. I did find that the Polychomos pencils were a bit hard on this paper, leaving an imprint, however it may of been because it was the first page. I didn’t have the same experience when I coloured elsewhere in the book.
