Breathe – In Graphite (Slow Coloring -Finishing Up)

2017-05-08T11:51:46-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , , |

Wow, this one took just about forever to color. It was wonderfully relaxing, though. Slow coloring always gives me a chance to take a little inventory. As each tiny shape gets filled in, I notice whether the slowness feels nurturing or if I feel tense or distracted. The more I practice slow coloring, the more [...]

Metallic Gel Pens & Transcend (Wide Tipped) – Finishing Up

2017-05-08T11:51:50-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , |

I'm doodling on my junk mail as I type this, coloring hearts and polka dots all over the envelope for my license plate sticker renewal notice, and that reminds me that I've never told you the story of one of my more embarrassing coloring moments.

I don't draw uncolorable dots or lines into my linework, but that doesn't mean that you can't go dot crazy if you want to. Feel free to embellish your colorings however you like. Sparklies, gel pens and little drawn details can be a lot of fun. I loved the way this coloring turned out so [...]

Transcend – Slow Coloring Day 4 (Rambling Chit Chat)

2017-05-08T11:51:52-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

As I get older I get ever more comfortable with short pencils. My current sketchbook graphite drawing pencil is somewhere between stub size and ridiculous stub size right now.

Are you feeling a lot of fear and tension in the air too? It seems that most people I know are. It doesn't matter how much we may differ in opinions or beliefs, we are all quite united in our understanding of how it feels to be uncertain, apprehensive, fearful or overwhelmed. And if those [...]

Coloring Journal pages are really nice for shorter coloring sessions or for busy times when you might want to sneak in little bits of coloring all day long. They are also a handy size for trying out new techniques. Here's a slide show overview of my most recent coloring progress: And here are [...]
