The latest coloring endeavor has me enthralled with something called a blender pencil. I’m quite impressed with how this colorless pencil can change the pigments after they are on paper and push them around. It’s added a dimension to my coloring knowledge that makes me feel like I’m actually an artist. Like I’m part of the club that knows what they are doing.
The picture comes from Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden and is the second picture that I’ve started in that book. The paper is lovely, heavy and a slight cream color rather than straight white. I’m using Prismacolor pencils for this one.
I’m really thrilled with this picture so far. The weather this weekend should be perfect to indulge this hobby.
