Happy Mail

Hi!

I hope your weekend is going well and you have some fun things planned!

I picked up Marianne Walkers Shadow & Shading book to see if I could learn about light source and shading when I color my images. It's a good book and I learned a few things now I just need to practice, practice and practice!

This is the first image I colored using the book as a guide.

This is Little Frieda at the Seashore by The Crafts Meow. She is colored with copics - R21, R22, R24, R27, R29, B32, B34, B37, B39, YR20, E000, E00, E30, E31, E33, E35, E40, E41, E42, E43.

The sentiment is Lili of the Valley's Ticket sentiments. The pattern papers are Basic Greys Life of the Party.


I am entering this card in The Crafts Meow July Sketch Challenge.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

You did a beautiful job coloring up Little Frieda! I can't wait to get my hands on that book, too. The right shadowing really adds to the beauty of the image. Thank you so much for showing Little Frieda some love and playing in our sketch challenge!
