Nightfall Colouring Book!

Hello Everyone, the sun is shining, what a rare treat!!

Back sooner than I usually am after posting a card, but I managed to get the first page of the lovely Nightfall Colouring Book by Maria Trolle finished;
It's a beautifully illustrated book with lovely paper with a great tooth for pencils, and at a pinch can take water colour.
I stated with the nameplate, and it took about a week to do with a couple of hours at a time, so not too bad. I've used Prismacolour pencils, and Luminance pencils. Silver gel pen and WoS.
I'm pretty pleased with it and looking forward to starting another page, making that choice is difficult as there are so many beautiful illustrations to choose from.

I'm getting more into colouring books as the need for cards has depleted, and of course I don't do craft fairs and I don't sell, so I don't need so many now, except for Christmas cards. So as long as I've got enough cards in my box I won't be making as many.

I find colouring in far more therapeutic than as I get lost in the colours and of course this is just for me, and it's a great way of experimenting with colours.

Anyhoo, that's me for today, have a good one yourself and thank you for yesterday's comments,

Stunning coloring, Kate. Beautifully done and the colors you chose are lovely. Color is very relaxing to me, sometimes I just color up two or three images without making them into cards right away. I have a lot of cards
in boxes that I have made for design teams. I would like to donate them to nursing homes or hospitals, but the cost of envelopes is so high.

Hugs
