Today, I have a finished page from Johanna Basford’s Lost Ocean, the sea shell page. It took about 2 weeks to finish. I used Caran D’Ache Supracolor color pencils.
I used a total of 10 colors for this page and alternated the order of the colors for the different types of shells. I used
011 Pale Yellow 021, Naples Yellow, 493 Granite Rose, 082 Rose Pink, 350 Purplish red, 085 Bordeaux red, 089 Dark carmine, 016 Khaki green, 225 Moss green, 239 Spruce green, 229 Dark green, and cream
I used some neutral pastel colors for the background for sand with a fine tip brown marker for little pebbles in the sand.
I used a Prismacolor colorless blender and then used a Caran D’Ache blender to brighten up the colors. Some of the color combinations required a bit more blending then others but the colors are vibrant.
After I used the pastel chalk, I sprayed a workable mat fixative to set the chalk in place and prevent it from transferring onto other pages in the book.
That should do it for today. I am onto another page in the Lost Ocean.
Starting in January, I will be creating both cards and more adult coloring pages.
Thanks for stopping by.
