Here's my monthly picture of the things I coloured. I love doing these things actually. And since I'm terrible at math I had only been counting four when I was working on my last page and nope, it was five! I found myself rushing on a page, trying to get it finished for this photo, and how silly is that? So yeah, I stopped, and I'll probably finish it in June.

ESO just had a huge update so this is as far as I've gotten on this cute page, we'll see when it actually gets finished but I'm not rushing it. #dailycoloringbook using #fabercastell #polychromos #colouredpencils #colouring #adultcolouringbooks #colouringforadults
I got this adorable colouring book, The Daily Colouring Book, and I'd picked out a different image to start with, but I kept going back to this one. I love rain, and I really like the realism mixed with cute in this book, so I figured even if I played around a bit I could do the image justice. Of course, May 21st was when the Summerset expansion for Elder Scrolls Online pre-released and I had a LOT to play and explore and enjoy so I knew I wouldn't be going very fast on this image. Not that it's a race, but I do like to be productive.
Of course whenever there's something I want to do I end up screwed with my various pain issues. I had several days where all I could do was sit at my desk and stare at Netflix which is incredibly boring (I usually watch and game) and pain sucks. Most of the time my body does one or the other, I can either game or I can colour, but sometimes it takes away both things I love. I did make a bit of progress though so I took a photo, lol.
My spoiled butt got four new colouring books in the mail and I was excited to work on them as I was excited to see this page finished. I knew it was coming along nicely and I love when things go smoothly. The paper is a bit strange, has lines in it, but it took to the Polychromos well. I love my Polychromos.
I'm so happy with how this came out. I used reference photos for the flowers, the rainy sky, the dress, the hat, and the cute little Korean home. I actually really like doing wood, which I didn't think I would but hey. Anyway, I hope you liked seeing the progress of this one. I really love Korean books, they're so imaginative and fun. I'm going to colour another in this soon I bet.

Since finishing my kitty mermaid I didn't want to start anything too complicated when I knew I had to drive the (4hrs) to LA for my doctor's appointment the next day. I picked this image from Shadowscapes. Unfortunately the CreateSpace paper makes this book a lot less fun since I wanted to colour it with my Copics, but my Pablos take well to CreateSpace paper so that's what I used. Plus they travel better, lol.
I did the watercolour base first and then the pencils in the car and boom, job done nice and quick.
