First installment of my colouring tutorial is now live! This series is a complete tutorial on how I page in Johanna Basford’s ‘Enchanted Forest’. At the moment i am anticipating that it will run over 5 episodes each approximately one hour long. There will be normal speed sections and a few fast speed sections where the work is repetitive. If you are following along in these sections I suggest you pause the video to catch up to where I’m up to. In real life the video took me three hours to complete including setting up and choosing colours, most of which I do off camera because it’s just me thinking and playing with my pencils (boring). I hope you enjoy this first installment. let me know what you think and any suggestions you have.
The pencils I use are Derwent Artist pencils and my favourite Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I understand that most people will not have these pencils in there possession. I suggest you use whatever you’ve got and try to match up the colours. Any pencils will work for this tutorial. Also, don’t feel you HAVE to use the same colours if you don’t want to. If you have a better idea for what you want go with it. I’ve seen this picture completed using many different colour combinations and they all look great. At the end of the video your picture will be completed to the stage as shown in the photo above.
Peppered in between these installments will be other types of videos: I have a few new colouring books lined up and a few art supplies to chat about. Also I’m looking at shorter one off videos to answer some of your colouring questions so look out for them as well. :).
