My colouring day coloured design!

Admittedly not the best photo, but this was drawn yesterday.  I started to colour it yesterday, using various brands of coloured pencils, and completed it today.  An hour or so to draw, 10 hours to colour is my estimate!

I have also realised why I tend to use paints and markers and inks for colours so much these days – these media are kinder to my arthritic-y finger and thumb joints!  I do love coloured pencils, the intensity of colour you can achieve, but needs must.

I have ordered various designs of cushioned pencil grips to see if they help with keeping my joints ache-free in the future.

In the meantime, I return to designing and drawing colouring templates with drawing pencil and pens, which seem to cause very few problems with the old joints.
