Next up in Sommarnatt, Dream Time. This turned out to be a lot more detailed then I anticipated at first glance. Which is really a good thing. Had to give up the rowan berry theme for pearls here, it wouldn’t have fit here but I think it came out okay.
Had some black accidents from the last page which refused to erase, Prisma doesn’t really like to be erased much. But that’s okay, it’s not that bad.
What is pretty bad though is that I noticed that all my pages have transfers from the opposite pages. At first I thought it’s cause I’ve colored too hard, even though I keep several sheets of copy paper and sometimes even cardboard between the pages. But no, even the ones I haven’t been close to have transferred a little. So I’m guessing the ink was still moist when the book was printed and closed. It will prove to be a bit of a challenge at places but luckily it’s not too bad. I just hope the next book won’t have this issue.
Dream watch was done with Caran D’Ache Luminance and gave the background just a little hint of color with Sennelier soft pastels.
As for the pencil reviews, I’m still debating on whether to do single reviews on every pencil and then a summary and comparison or do one HUGE post about all of them all at once, which might get too messy. So I’m swaying towards a whole series of overview/review/comparison posts.
But now back to coloring, the door awaits 🙂
