Template Thursday!

Thursday comes around quite quickly, and with it comes a new coloring page, or coloring template if you prefer, for the members of the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group to bring to life with colour.

This week is a fabulous fungi fantasia. I really enjoyed drawing this one, and adding colour really brings it to life. I’ve chosen rather bright, almost psychedelic colours, as is often the case! So, I’m intrigued to see how others will use colour magic to bring the drawing to life.

The design was drawn with a Tombow Fudenosuke pen on marker paper. This version is coloured digitally in Clip Studio Paint.

Here’s the link to a timelapse video showing the drawing of this template.

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for the sneak peek of Thursday’s coloring template for the members of the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.

I’m still on a mushroom kick, so this template is full of marvellous mushrooms. Indeed, it could be said to be a fantastic, fabulous fungi fest!

I had a lot of fun drawing this template. It took well over two hours to do so, and so I’ve added a timelapse of the process to my YouTube channel.

I’ve added some colour using Arteza Ever Blend markers.

It’s Template Thursday!

Here is this week’s template for the members of the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.

I’m in need of cute whimsy at the moment, so a Doodleworlds style design is just what my emotions needed.

Drawn with a Uniball Eye micro pen. Coloured digitally in Clip Studio Paint.

It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for a sneaky peek at tomorrow’s template for the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.

It’s not finished yet; I’m about halfway through. There is a timelapse video of the drawing so far on YouTube.

I’m still exhausted after a stressful couple of days organising routine appointments, then having the first yesterday. The rest of them are tomorrow afternoon.

As the stress hormones leach from my body, as I start to come down from the intense stress/anxiety I’ve experienced around the appointments, I’m left exhausted, with brain fog. Today, I’m not so brain foggy, but I am still really tired. I had a poor night’s sleep which didn’t help.

So, today is going to be a quiet one. I want to get this drawing finished, maybe my drawings for Sketchtember – Day 15 done too. But I’ll see. I think I need some more tea first!

As the calendar turns to Thursday once again, it’s time for another coloring page / coloring template for the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans Facebook Group members.

This week, I ran with a kind of request from a member and created two drawings which feature a rectangular area into which a photobooth photo would fit. Or anything else you can think of putting there – a precious button or coin mounted on card, a single earring kept for sentimental value, a ticket, a clipping from a magazine or newspaper, a tiny piece of embroidery, or needlefelting, or polymerclay, or fossil, or a tiny envelope containing a precious note/letter, or, or, or. You’re only limited by your creativity, and the sizes of the nested rectangles!

I’m going to be intrigued to see what people produce with these. I can be tagged in posts as @Artwyrd on Instagram or Twitter. And as Angela Porter on Facebook.

I’ve also added a geometrical pattern in the middle of the sets of nested rectangles if you don’t want to add anything to this space.

Both images would fit on an A5 card (metric/UK size), or a folded letter sized sheet of card for those of you in the US. They also could be mounted on card and framed if wished.

I’ved used Arteza Ever Blend markers from the Gray Tones set to add colour to the designs. And, for the design on the left, I’ve added white highlights with a Sakura Soufflé pen.

In today’s vlog on Youtube, I talk about the designs, and add the highlights to the left hand design.

Template Thursday…on WIP Wednesday?

Link to today’s vlog on YouTube.

Wednesday is the day when I create the coloring page / coloring template for the members of Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group. And I film and upload the process of drawing to YouTube.

This week is another page that is different. Someone said that they’d love it if I could create a drawing with a space for a photobooth image. So, I’m creating two such designs, in my signature Entangled art style.

I only have photobooth images from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology range, which I have in my stash. I’ve looked on Amazon Uk, and there are a few sets left, but not the pack I have. I think I’m going to have to trim the photo of the bloke down a bit.

Of course, if you don’t have photobooth images, you can use other photos, trimmed down, magazine or book images, stickers, or even buttons, coins, jewellery, and more attached to a sturdy piece of card sized to fit the frame. I’ll show some ideas, hopefully, in tomorrow’s video.

Here it is, the sneak peek at tomorrow’s coloring template for the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.

This week, I was asked to create a mandala by Brett, who runs the group. So I did. And this one has a very autumnal theme to it. It is the first day of September and summer is waning away with autumn starting to make it’s way from the wings.

I’ve chosen a rather subdued palette for today’s addition of colour. No doubt I’ll have a different version for tomorrow’s posting!

Color Palette Challenge for August 2021

Link to today’s vlog on YouTube. In it I draw some of the coloring template for tomorrow.

It’s the last Wednesday in the month, so it’s the end of this month’s color palette challenge.

I chose to add colour to the first coloring page of the month for Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group. The colours are bright, cheerful and tropical. I always enjoy a limited palette, though I also mix colours to add some variation in colours, particularly the greens.

I spent the morning drawing this week’s template for the facebook group. If you’d like a sneak peek of some of it, have a look at today’s vlog.

It’s Template Thursyay!

This week’s coloring template / coloring page for the members of Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group is a typically entangled one. But one that’s a bit different too!

Instead of having an outer frame, I’ve included a frame, but behind the drawing. I wanted the elements to grow out of the frame in places, just for a change. And I’ve just noticed where I’ve not coloured a little piece of that frame! Oops! Still, I think that by colouring the frame in, it helps any colourist to work out some of the more intricate and fiddly places where it lies.

I’ve chosen a vintagey, halloweeny colour palette. As we’re nearing the end of August, autumn won’t be far away here in the valleys of South Wales, and the rest of the northern climes. I’m quite eager for nature’s change of clothing. Indeed, I’ve spotted some small changes in colour here and there, a quiet heralding of autumn.

Yesterday, I completed colouring the cover for the book I’m starting on soon for Creative Haven. It was proclaimed as being ‘the cutest thing ever!’ by my editor.

Time Lapse Doodleworlds Pen Drawing on YouTube

It’s that time of the week again – the sneak peek of this week’s coloring template for the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.

It’s another Doodleworlds style template this week, simply because I needed some whimsy in my day today! Plenty of detail and variation in motifs, with some entangled arches too.

There is a time lapse video of the drawing – which took over two hours to complete.

The template will be available to members of the facebook group tomorrow.
