Jody Bergsma Designs Colouring Book

I just finished a Jody Bergsma Design colouring book, that I started last fall. There were about 18 designs in all. I did them with gel pens and coloured pencils. I really enjoyed doing this book and am kind of sad that I finished it. As always, click on the pics to see the detail of the shading and such. I coloured this one with Jaime and her nephew in mind.

I kept dragging my hand through the wet gel pens when I first started, hence the big smudge on the bottom right. It was a conscious effort on my part not to keep doing that.The gel pens really make the pictures shimmer, which is hard to see when the pages are scanned.

I had to rely on the internet in order for me to use the accurate colour scheme on the birds.

This was the final picture in the book and of all of them, this is my fave the way it came out.

    Those are beautiful JoJo. What lovely drawings.

  3. I know I wish I could draw like that. So I let the experts draw the designs and I add the colour.
