It's been some time since I colored a cat themed illustration. Well, today there is one from the Cats Colouring for Mindfulness book. Except for the eyes, I used only three colors to fill in this image. The work was done with glittering gel pens, very cheap Chinese stuff but looks really nice and very sparkly under the light.

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I have colored a few Christmas and winter themed pages but had no time to take photos of those yet. So, instead a finished page from Johanna Basford's Lost Ocean book today. For coloring these seahorses I used Faber Castell markers and Maped Coror Peps pencils. To achieve that smooth background I put 5 layers of a color. Quite a task! And here is same page colored by my daughter. She used WHSmith markers.
Have a nice day and happy coloring!

There are plenty of reviews of artist coloring pencils on the net, such as Faber Castell Polychromos or Prismacolor. I am sure those pencils are fantastic and lucky are those who can afford them for using in coloring books. I can't. All the pencils I have been using so far are budget ones. And today I want to write a review on the most budget color pencils that I managed to find. I am talking about WHSmith Let's Create set of 100 coloring pencils that I bought online for mere 6.49 pounds. And what can I say? I am pretty happy with them! Of course, if you like coloring by putting layer after layer of a color these pencils would not work. They can be used for two-three layers but no more. Anyway, a reaaly impressive effect can be reached thanks to a large variety of shades. Have a look at the range of colors in this pack
