I have recently come across some colouring books on line which have

 beautiful illustrations and when they are coloured in make beautiful works of art.

I want to improve my work with coloured pencil and watercolour

and thought that colouring books would be a good way to do this.

 Linda Ravenscroft  is an artist well known for her illustrations of fairies and has

some lovely colouring books which are available on her website.

I chose her book ' Fairy and Fantasy Art 2 Painting and Colouring Book.'

The paper is 300gsm and is perfect for watercolour and the pages

are one sided so ideal for framing if you wished.

I was hesitant to start my first page as I didn't want to ruin such beautiful illustrations.

Here is my first page.


.......and after.

Completed in watercolour and coloured pencil.

Before I go here is a little update on my current project.

Not much done since my last post.

Next step more... more gesso.

Thanks for visiting.
