Updating with a few of my latest colourings from Lizzie Mary Cullen’s ‘The Magical City’. This one, titled Soho, turned out to be a bit stressful. I had no idea how to colour it so I started by looking up pictures of Soho. Most showed it as being a bright, modern, flashy looking place lit by bright neon colours. Okay, Peta loves a challenge, so I decided to emulate the bright colours reflecting off the buildings. Half way through I knew I had made a mistake trying to marry the blues and pinks with the dull browns of the buildings. It just doesn’t work. Not the way i did it. So after leaving the picture for several weeks hoping I would be inspired with a brilliant idea to fix this one, an idea which never eventuated, I pressed on and finished it off so I could move onto the next picture. This is only the second picture in the book which I’m not happy with. My fault, because the line art itself is fun. Just bad colour choices and positioning. We all have our failures and this one is one of mine.
