This design is from The Menagerie book, a stunning collection of animal art, which are larger than A4 so take some time to complete.
I worked with WHS Spectrum Sings Pencils, using yellow, orange and purple.
When I finish a colourist project I do reflect as to what I wanted to achieve, and how I the project felt to work with.
I have realised that not only am I practicing my shading and colour work, but I am also wanting to create a work of art.
Do others consider coloured in artwork, actually art? I do believe they are, and find myself approaching a project with that end result in mind.
I do love how this completed art looks, the colours work really well, contrasting so nicely. I do enjoy working with zentangle patterns, using coloured shading to hightlight how the pattern is drawn, makes for an interesting challenge.
