Colouring has definitely become my number one passion at the moment. I have been colouring about a year and a half now and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. I have always kept my colouring books to myself and haven’t participated much in the colouring community. But I have decided to get more involved, share my work and communicate with others who share my passion. In my personal life, I often find myself quite isolated with a toddler. So this is another way for me to be more sociable.
Since colouring is such a big part of my life I decided to update this blog to make it more colouring fan friendly. I have made a few more pages and links dedicated to my colouring book collection, materials, finished pictures and colouring book reviews. I hope you guys find them easier to view and can give you inspiration for your own work. You can also find me on Instagram and Pinterest, where you can see what I’ve been working on.
Here is my entire collection so far. I’ve promised myself that I won’t be buying any more books until I have at least started all of them. To get a better look, check out the Colour section of my site menu.
At the moment I have been colouring my way through Sagor Och Sägner by Emelie Lidehäll Öberg. I still have a few more pages to complete before I will write a review of the book and display my finished pictures. But you can see what I’m currently working on social media.
Until then I will leave you with a couple of pictures I coloured from Lizzie Mary Cullen’s The Magical City. They were both done a few months back. They were coloured with Inktense pencils and stars were done with White Signo Gel Pen. The first is not really a place, it’s just named Chimneys and Rooftops. The second picture is Bruges, Belgium. I actually did visit Bruges on my holiday so this picture is a familiar scene to me.
I haven’t touched this book since I did these, but I’m sure I’ll pick it back up soon enough. I love working with my water pen. This is the only book I have actually used Inktense in since I’m a little scared I’ll ruin my other books.
I hope you enjoyed this colouring update and inspired you to pick up your pencils!
