I found the skull colouring page on pinterest and used transfer paper to transfer the outer lines, the eye sockets, the nose cavity and the teeth of the skull to my drawing cardboard. Then I freely inserted my own patterns. I used Staedtler and Stabilo fineliners and some alcohol markers to colour in the drawing.
This is a sampler page from Dover’s colouring book “Chinese designs stained glass” which I coloured in with all kinds of markers, Stabilo and Staedtler fineliners, PITT Artist brush pens and alcpholic markers. I think that all these markers go pretty well together!
This is the final version of the “Happy Colours” piece. I used Stabilo and Staedtler pens and drawing cardboard as support. All in all it took more than a week to do it – either in the morning at the breakfast table or in the early evening when I had returned from work.
This piece is hand-drawn and coloured with Stabilo and Staedtler pens. Although spring is round the corner we aren’t seeing many spring colours here in Berlin at the moment. So I thought to create my own happy colours…
Yesterday I decided to do an image search for “whale”, found a photo of a killer whale and did a quick sketch of it. This is a bit of a change after all that colouring. I still like to colour, but I think that I want to do more sketches and drawing exercises.
This is another dover publications sampler page, and I used all my green markers to colour it in. These markers were alcohol markers and water-based markers resp. fineliners, and I think they fit together.
Here is the final version of the fish. Colouring page was downloaded from Dover publications and coloured with Staedtler triplus fineliners on copy paper. I must say that I love these blue and greens!
