So many of my followers have been asking me to do a Colour Along for ages now, but I've never been confident enough to actually give it a go! I do video tutorials which people can take or leave, but to do a Colour Along where people will be following my every move down to the colours and techniques was really daunting! What if I fudge something up entirely? What if it turns out looking rubbish? What if I pick crap colours? In the end I had to put all these things aside and just get it done! So I created a poll to find out which book you'd all like to see the Colour Along in and Johanna's Christmas came out on top. I chose the fireplace scene and decided on Prismacolor pencils for their blending capabilities- but you can use any media you like.
I was initially going to do this as a video series but the memory on my camera only allows me to take fairly short clips and I really didn't want it going off halfway through! So I ended up creating a step-by-step PDF tutorial with photos and written directions that you can follow at your own pace. Click the button below to download the Colour Along:
I *really* hope you all enjoy it as it took hours to put together! I'm giving it away as a free tutorial rather than sell it on Etsy as a lot of colouring tutorials are, purely because I want you all to be able to try it and hopefully learn some new techniques including how to colour marble and stone.
Please show me your WIP's and finished pages when complete, I'd LOVE to see them and it makes it all worthwhile :)
