Hi again. Today I have two new videos uploaded onto my Youtube channel. Both of these videos show you how I completed the above picture of a rainbow fish in Johanna Basford’s book ‘Lost Ocean’. The first one is a visual tutorial where I show and tell you exactly how I go about adding pastels to my colouring pages to produce a quick, even background colour. In it you will find a detailed list of ALL the products I use to achieve this effect.
PASTEL BACKGROUND TUTORIAL
The second video is a speed colouring of the same fish using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, Derwent Artist pencils and several gel pens. I chose to colour this one in very densely with deep, rich colours. Apart from a small amount of Derwent blending pencil on the orange part of the fish I did not use any blending mediums in this picture.
