Maybe not with the frequency of posts but with my colouring. I have not made a finished project that I can share with you for a while because I have been busy practising colouring skin with my Copics. I cannot remember if I have already told you but I am working my way through a colouring course from Kit and Clowder under the direction of the very talented and extremely encouraging Alyce. This year to get everyone motivated again after Christmas she has started Boot Camp. Every two weeks an inspirational email comes in with handy tips and encouragement to keep going.
So I have been practising. I have a small problem with OCD and cannot move onto the next step until I am happy with the task I am currently doing. However as I am my own worst critic I am never satisfied which means I have coloured the same face 36 times and still counting! I think it is now time to move on. Looking at my first attempt compared to my latest attempt there is a vast improvement so maybe I can cut myself some slack.
Just to show you how bad it is here is a photo of some of my coloured images (only the skin is coloured because I have not yet got to the hair part of the course!)
You maybe wondering what has happened to the Spectrum Noirs. I still use them for the majority of my colouring, but for small images (the whole of this image is only 3.5cms) I do find the Copics easier to use because they have a much finer point on the brush nib.
Hopefully I will have a card done to share in the not too distant future, meanwhile back to the practising!
Thanks for dropping in. Take care.
