Seahorse!

Hello Everyone, I hope all is well with you and that you are having good weather. We have sunshine and heat today, in fact it's too hot for me to sit out, so a bit of colouring in the cool of indoors.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last piece of work.
Here is one I've just completed this morning;
This is from Johanna Basford's Lost Ocean. Johanna is a brilliant illustrator from Aberdeen and her colouring books are outstanding, though very detailed, good for challenging yourself. Anyhoo, I used Black Widow Pencils and Prismacolour Pencils and FC Soft Pastel for the background having first drawn bubbles with a white pencil. 
As usual my photo is hopeless, I wish I could do that better, but I', pleased with how it's turned out and it only took a week lol. Now what to do next.
I have quite a few colouring books so spoiled for choice, but I think I will look for something less detailed this time.

Thanks always for your visits, take care of yourselves and have a super day,

Its terrific Kate.
I hadn't noticed the bubbles on the photo you sent. They look fab.
Not heard of Black Widow pencils but you obviously work wonders with them.

Brilliant job with the detailed seahorse Kate and I didn't know Johanna is from Aberdeen. I have a one off piece in my dining room from her, so thank you for the information x.

Hi Kate,
this is excellently coloured and so gorgeous.
those bubbles are amazing and you have done such a great job of them.
I wish I could colour outside but my eyes are not good enough any more.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

More beautiful colouring with this wonderfully detailed seahorse Kate and I love the flourishy circle, and the lovely way the white pencil bubbles have resisted the blue is so pretty. x

Beautifully colored seahorse, Kate, and the circle framing looks so pretty.
