I wanted to share a page I colored out of Ivy and the Inky Butterfly from Johanna Basford. I colored the page with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and used a light green and a light yellow chalk pastel for the background.
For the bell, I used Burnt Ochre, Brown Ochre, Light Yellow Ochre, Dark Naples Ochre, Naples Yellow, White and gel pen
For the flowers, I used Fuchsia, Pink Carmine, Pink Madder Lake, Light Flesh and Cream.
For the leaves, I used Chrome Oxide Green, Chromium Green Opaque, Permanent Green, Earth Green Yellowish, and May Green
I lightly applied pastel chalks on the page for the background. I think in hindsight, I should have left the page white. The white caused the colored image to stand out more.
I want to give a shout out to Colour with Claire. I used her Faber Castell Color Chart to organize my colored pencils in my pencil case. It makes it a lot easier to find color combinations for those who are new to polychromos.
Well, that should do it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
