Pretty Little Girls

Still working with my coloring skills using Prisma Color pencils on Kraft Cardstock.

It has been not as easy as i thought it would be. I have found that Gamsol does not work as blending medium

 Claudia_Rosa_Notebook_1 
What i have done is giving my images a light layer of color, since Prisma colors are kind of creamy that worked as a base to blend the darker color with the tip of the pencil. Than i added some more color with other pencils, always making sure that i do not color too much over the black outlines of the image. They disappear quickly, if you are not careful.

These are stunning. You find it difficult to color, I can't see a bot of that. The colors looks so bright. The background is really lovely.

Kirsty-Anne (Kitty) said...

Hi I have been trying out prismacolor pencils too ! I used sansador and it was great for blending and the best thing is if you fade out the border lines you can rub it off with a soft rubber. I love your colouring and shadows and the idea for using craft paper is different ! Thanks Kitty :)
