RSD Fantasie 2005

One of my favourite colouring books has to be The World of Rick St Dennis. There is just such a great mix of gorgeous designs in this book. I've spent the last 2 days working on this one & love how it's turned out.

I coloured this using my usual Marco Raffine & Whsmith pencils, with soft pastels added to the background. I wanted to have lightening bolts around it so I used an eraser & a shaky hand to add these.
Hope you like it 😀

For more info on all Rick's books check out his blog here....

Oh Christmas Tree

With the start of the Christmas ads & Christmas movies appearing on tv, I was feeling a little Christmassy this week. So the tree image in Johanna Basford's Enchanted Forest was just crying out for a snowy scene.

Coloured using pencils, soft pastels & white acrylic paint. 
Love how these books can let your imagination run & create your own personal pics.

Freebie Colourings

There's now quite a lot of colouring groups on Facebook, which is great to see others work & added bonus is that every now & again some artists share their gorgeous designs for free.

I've coloured a couple of these artist freebies this week from Slinky Tart & Katie Packer. Both different styles but had so much fun doing them & they both allowed me to get colour crazy.

Both coloured using Marco Raffine pencils, Whsmith pencils, black Sharpie pen & soft pastels on bottom one.

Slinky Tart Mandala can be found here...

Katie Packer's freebie can be found here...

Burlesquephants Backstage

Coloured using Marco Raffine pencils, Whsmith pencils & soft pastels.

You can find them in The World of Rick St Dennis book by Rick St Dennis!

Witch's Coven

Almost Trick or Treat time again, so to get me in the mood for Halloween, I coloured the Witch's Coven from The World of Rick St Dennis.

This took me about 8 hours, with coloured pencils & soft pastels on the background.

Hope you all have a fabulously freaky & spooky Halloween 🎃🎃

Bored of colouring leaves...

I got so bored of colouring flowers, leaves & animals that I started looking for alternative quirky books.
Surprised to find out there is actually lots out there & my favourites have to be by an artist called Rick St Dennis.
I use pencils on all my pics with occasional backgrounds done using soft pastels.
Here's a few of my Rick St Dennis ones from his Day of the Dead book ...
