The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
I am sharing something a little different today as I thought I’d do a colouring tutorial.
This is a cropped image kindly provided by Mo Manning and the full version is available here. The papers I have used are from HOTP ‘s Chocolate Dipped range.
This is the card I eventually made with the image.
I started her hair with Honeycomb, using it to surround all the highlights. I decided where the highlights would be by looking at the curls and deciding which part of each curl would be at the front and which behind.
I then layered Ginger on top, moving away from the highlight areas which are left white.
The next colour to be added was Terracotta.
Finally I used the broad tip to colour the whole area with Mustard. This blends the colours and makes her highlights golden instead of white.
Colours used were:
Hair: Honeycomb, Ginger, Terracotta, Rosewood, Mustard.
Skin: Blush, Sunkissed Pink, Coral, soft pink
Tee: Lime Gree, Pear Green
