How I coloured the Floral Star Easter Egg

Sometimes in between designing new colouring books I get the opportunity to colour my own templates and I had a lot of fun trying out my set of 48 polychromos pencils on one of the Egg designs from the 45 Eggs to Colour – Easter Family Fun Book which is available in the Colouring and Tangling Shop as a printable PDF or as a budget book on Amazon.

I love how this colouring turned out and must say I was also impressed with the polychromos pencils too. They blend nicely and have a harder lead than the prismacolors. I like both pencils equally and find myself using both when colouring. Anyway I thought you might enjoy seeing the work in progress and my colouring pencil techniques.

The Egg template I coloured is from the book and I’m giving this away for free as a sampler. Click on the picture above – top left – to get the Floral Star Egg Template for free and have a go at colouring it yourself.

 

Choosing a Colour Scheme

CHOOSING A COLOUR SCHEME is something that many of you have told me you struggle with and it can be daunting. I particularly like to work with a mixture of warm and cool colours. I wrote a post about ways to overcome this HERE.choosing colours

I think it’s finished now

I also added some hot pinks to finish it off. The aim is a balance of warm and cool colours where one colour doesn’t dominate too much. You will notice that the colours went over the black lines in certain areas in this close-up which you don’t really notice at normal scale. For the perfectionists among us you could go over the lines with a black fine liner or sharpie pen.
