Colouring Catchup.....

Well, it's been nearly a month since the last Catchup so this will be a mammoth post.
I've managed to complete two books and you'll see flip through videos at the end of this post.

First up, I coloured the second image in Kwiaty Baroku and I'm starting to get to grips with this book. I still feel that some of the colours got a bit swallowed up though. I think the white Japanese anemones turned out well.

Next up I jumped back into If the Cat Fits (review) for some fun. This book is perfect for a break from the more detailed colouring. Here are just a couple that I coloured -

The Night Voyage by Daria Song (review) has been on the back burner for a while so I coloured these two spreads. The first one isn't so successful but I'm pleased with the Big Ben spread.

My main book now has become The Night Before Christmas (review) so I've managed get about a quarter of the way through it to date. I find that I'm using pastels a lot in this book. Here are three images from it. I'm starting on the reindeer next!

I've also started two new books that I'll be colouring right through. It's so hard to resist starting more books! First up is the greyscale Twelve Dancing Princesses (review) by Ruth Sanderson. This is a learning curve for me as I've only done a little greyscale colouring before, and never people. I'm using pencils and going over them with Gamsol. The paper isn't flash.

And finally I just started Jessica Palmer's new book, Tiffany Glass (review & flip through). I think I'll be using Inktense in this book.
