Coloring With Pencils

I recently found this great website where I can purchase and download floral images just like these two. Check out my link on the left to Sketching Stamper Digi-Stamps. Christine, the owner, was so helpful with all of my questions about digi-stamps.

This is the type of coloring that I really enjoy doing.. an image that I can shade and lay color to create depth. I could do this technique for hours and hours (and I do!!). It's so relaxing and therapeutic!

These are colored with Prisma and Lyra pencils and worked with Gamsol using blending stumps and tortillons.The daffodil image has a bit of a glare in the photo as I used a bit of stickles at the center of the flowers. In real life it looks much better.

Those are beautiful. I saw my first daffodils of the Spring these weekend by the lake of the Ozarks, and it reminds me of them.
