You may remember on one of my recent Hochanda shows, I was lucky enough to launch the new Johanna Basford colouring book – Lost Ocean! In my break between filming we recorded a little time lapse video to show me colouring a whole image from start to finish, this was featured briefly on my last show of the day but Hochanda have said I can share it with you all so you can have a proper look!
This is the page I coloured…
I used the Sakura gel pens that came bundled with the book and colouring pencils. Here is the video of me colouring in really fast! (ha! I wish!) big thanks to Hochanda for putting it together and letting me share it.
Here are a couple of close ups of the finished page…
I used the Sakura glaze pens on the bubbles here for the raised shiny effect!
Lots of sparkle on the treasure!
and lots of brights for the tropical fish – you can use your pencils over the top of the dry gel pen to add depth and shading after. The book is still available from the Hochanda website and if you coloured along or just got your book and started, we’d love to see your pics so please do share here in the comments or on my or Hochanda’s Facebook page.
Thank you for dropping by today!
