And this is another Dover colouring page, coloured digitally. You can see the steps in this blog post.

Digital Colouring

This page was coloured entirely in Procreate on my iPad.

It started with a free sample colouring page from Dover Publications.

colouring step 1

I chose this colour palette from Design Seeds,

colour palette

and added solid colour fills.

colouring step 2

I added a texture layer underneath the drawing, a close-up photo of the wooden wall of our sun room, and blended the two layers.

colouring step 3

And finally, I added a small highlight to each of the circles to give added dimension.

colouring step 4

If you enjoyed this, you can see more of my digital artwork in this Flickr album.

If you want to explore colour schemes, I have a large collection on Pinterest.

2015 Creativity Challenge – week 40

This is week 40 of Kelly Barone 2015 Challenge.
You can click the images below for a larger view.


First, some new digital artwork.

This is a colouring page from Dover Publications that I coloured in Procreate on my iPad.

Digitally coloured page

At the top of this image is a portion of a background I created in Procreate. I then took the image into another app, Photo Studio, to see what I could do with some of the photo effects. These are a few interesting ones.

Digital textures

This is a digital collage with a vintage drawing.

And a digital collage with one of my mandalas.

Going back to colouring on paper, this is a page from the book Color Me Crazy by Peter Deligdisch. I scanned and printed it on cream card stock, and coloured it with Prismacolors.
