Step-by-Step from Tiffany Glass

Jessica Palmer's new book, Tiffany Glass (review and flip through video), interprets the wonderful designs of Tiffany lamps into images that we can colour.`I'm colouring my way through this book and already been looking at lots of examples of Tiffany glass online. When I came to this image in the book I was rather puzzled about what I was looking at!

Here is the finished image -

Step 1

Here is the image just after I started blacking out the headlight lines. You can see how difficult it is to see what's happening in it! I'm using a Staedtler pigment liner pen. They come in different nib sizes and they're wonderful.

Step 1

Step 2

Okay, the blacking work is finished and I must say that didn't really make the drawing any clearer!

Step 2

Step 3

I could see that there were several leaf shapes up in the top right area so I started there. However it soon became obvious that I'd better switch to getting the flowers in first. There are some obvious flower centres and I just worked out from that, using a limited palette.

Step 3

Steps 4 and 5

Finally I just kept filling in the leaves and at the end I coloured the dragonfly. Also I blacked out the border. Here are the Holbein pencils I used.

Step 4
